You double as a mom, cook, cleaner, business woman and taxi driver on a daily basis. Surely you deserve at-least an hour a week to look after yourself and keep fit.
A study published by the American Journal of Psychiatry found that people who are physically active just 1- 2 hours a week have a 44% lower chance of developing depression in comparison to those are aren't active. The same study shows that just 30 mins of physical activity is beneficial and better than no physical activity at all.
Ladies take that time you deserve. Start taking care of yourself as well as you take care of everyone else!

10 years ago marks the day I stood outside of a tattoo shop, looking to get a scar from a bite gouge on my forearm covered. I was being stalked, physically attacked and constantly threatened by someone who used to be my ride or die. One side of me wanted to erase it all from my mind, the other half wanted to use it as fuel for fire. I chose the latter.
I did everything I was supposed to do, call the police for help, which was no help because he would claim I was a crazy bitch who attacked him first, so the police said they would arrest us both. I never went out alone, it didn’t matter, he would still be there, following me into the women’s room, leaving suicide notes on my car, was drugged and had to lock myself in my vehicle and sleep it off... no one could help me so I had to help myself.
It’s funny how when you get a handgun, learn how to fight, and weight lift people leave you the fuck alone.
I’ve had some crazy ass shit happen to me but instead of letting it defeat me, it only made me stronger.
It took me a while to open up about my experiences but I was shocked and saddened to hear so many stories similar to mine. The amazing part is seeing how resilient women are, how we come back fucking stronger than before, and how fiercely protective we are of each other.
If you know all too well what I’m talking about, just know you’re not alone, don’t be afraid to talk about it and let everyone know what a POS that person is, it’s NOT YOUR FAULT, you are NOT weak, you’re not crazy. It’s a pathetic person’s way of trying to break a strong person down. HE should feel ashamed, not you. He will not change. #FuckDomesticViolence
