Second Wind Workout
During the late afternoon, I’ll feel drowsy and tired after work. “The post-work exhaustion is real,” I’d joke around with my roommates. Before, I’d lay on my bed and doomscroll social media or YouTube after work making me feel more exhausted. I started going on walks during this time instead. At first, I’d still feel lethargic but I’d feel energized after the walk.
This late afternoon exercise is what Robin Sharma calls a “Second Wind Workout.” Just like a marathon runner experiences fatigue and pain before experiencing second wind, we too can experience the highs of a second wind by simply walking during this time.
