What Workout to do According to Your Mood

The fitness equivalent of a mood ring.

By: Noah Lehava

Here’s a fun, obvious, and not-at-all-new fact: exercise is good for the body and the brain. Sometimes it’s even better than therapy. Whether you’ve got a case of the Sunday Scaries, just want to forget your tequila-fueled, ahem, activities from the night before, or are fuming from, well, you just don’t want to talk about it, there’s a workout that’s perfect to help get you over it. And if you’re on the complete opposite spectrum of emotions and just need something to keep up the good vibes, there’s something here for you too.

 

 

If you’re stressed...

 Do yoga

 

Chilling the fuck out, clearly, is the goal here. Take a deep breath, disconnect, and stretch your way as close to zen as possible. Hell, you deserve it.

 

 

If you’re angry…

Go boxing

 

This one is pretty self-explanatory: imagine the face of your ex-boyfriend here. Let out all that fire in the most badass way: punching and kicking stuff!

 

 

If you’re suffering from PDA (post-drinking anxiety)…

Do dance cardio

 

There’s no faster way to get the eff over yourself than by watching yourself (and others) in the mirror as you hilariously try to keep up with your instructor's dance moves to “Work.” Especially post-night-out with residual tequila still in your bloodstream. Trust us, after the third failed twerk (oh yes, you did), you’ll forget about all of last night’s mishaps.

 

 

If you’re fucking beaming…

Try the trampoline

 

What are you, a total freak? JK. Kinda. Keep that feeling for as long as humanly possible (because it’s #lifegoals) and jump around on a mini trampoline—it makes even the cynics in us want to have some good ol’ childish fun.
