It could be your boss, it could be that time of the month or it could be nothing at all—if you’ve got a pulse, you will have days when you feel like life is punching you in the face. But while bad vibes may be inevitable, they don’t have to be permanent. Work yours out with these six workouts.
CLIMBING AT FIRST ASCENT
TFW you scale a 60-foot wall? It’s a high all its own. Tap into it at indoor climbing gym First Ascent. And when you’ve tackled top-roping, try your hand at lead-climbing or bouldering. There’s even yoga classes, so say “bye” to boredom.
