let it out and move on....

As much energy as we expend during exercise,
 we need to put that much back in. 
Respecting our bodies by sitting quietly and bringing the attention back to the breath.

Much of our health is related to our metal state
that controls stress, sleep and recovery.

I just started reading THE BUDDAH WALKS INTO A BAR
What I have to work on is the INCREDIBLE HULK SYNDROME
Learning how to deal with your strong emotions when they arise quickly.

There is a analogy about a glass of water...

"The first thing to remember is that these emotions are not your enemy.  They are fluid and open experiences.  They are the dirt swirling in a glass of water before it settles to the bottom.  Like the dirt in the glass, your emotions won't always be active on the surface unless you keep stirring them up.  In other words, it's not your strong emotions that get you in trouble, its the fact that you get hooked by them."

I think the trick is to not let things get backed up, not let things build until you explode.
But do yourself a service of dealing with things as they come up and fully allowing yourself to move past them. 

Remember things will arise, but you have the choice of whether or not to give them energy.
The more you sit quietly the more this will make sense. 
Choose the breath, choose to teach yourself how to react better/differently by learning how to make healthier decisions in the moment.
