I've always found that my thinking is much more clear after a good workout (running in particular). I'm also very mindful when I work out, all of life's troubles and other nonsense just float away as I am fully experiencing the moment.
Certainly couldn't be a bad thing, in moderation.
I really, really love it when my 4 year old tells me to "just breathe, dad. In through the nose, out through the mouth. You'll be fine."
I have 2-3 cups of coffee in the morning, then it's tea and water for the rest of the day.
The coffee snaps me out of the fog of my meds and the actions of baby twins all night.
I've been trying to find a way to look on the bright side of suffering and sadness. When I am sad, or experiencing suffering, I find that the experience of that (PTSD, Anxiety, Depression, Loss, etc) has given me better insight into what someone else may be feeling. In a way, I am glad to have the problems I do, because it allows me to help others more effectively.
Hard to "polish that turd" though.
