Could it be because I haven't been going to the gym? I was so used to getting exercise about 3X a week, and ever since I haven't been going I feel a change in my overall attitude. Things that normally wouldn't bother me are intensely affecting me. I feel a lot less accomplished and a lot more 'blue'.
The reason I stopped going to the gym in the first place was because I wanted to lose some unwanted muscle mass, and so I could recalibrate my body. Now I'm finding that I'm missing the tense muscles and the mental euphoria that I got from working out.
I really do think the change in my state of mind is because I haven't gotten exercise. So maybe all of the studies about exercise as a mood elevator and stabilizer are true?
It's just kind of weird/crazy/cool to see the phenomenon within yourself.
I'm a human guinea pig!
Has anyone else dealt with this?
P.S. I'm going to get dressed and hit the gym. :)
