A Negative Mood Leads To Exercising

Part of this dream took place during the day at what looked like my parents yard and house.

My family, some of my coworkers, some police, some other people, and I were there as well.

At some point I was inside the house either my female coworker TR and / or another female coworker needed someone to get her clothes, I remember TR saying that her husband was supposed to be bringing the clothes, I wanted to offer to get her clothes for her but there were some concerns that I had that prevented me from offering to get them.

My female coworker JB was possibly in the dream before this during a forgotten part of the dream, maybe something negative happened and / or something negative was perceived on my part that when combined with several other things in the dream, led to my mood becoming more negative.

I remember seeing my brother CC about to leave the bathroom not fully clothed so I warned him about all the people who were here, and so he probably got dressed or more covered before leaving the bathroom.

The next thing that I remember is us being inside a Walmart or a Walmart-like store or we were outside in another place first, and then we went inside the store.

My coworkers led by one of our assistant directors Mrs. CH were busy finishing up something as I waited, my mood was negative at this point with me feeling maybe generally sad, hurt, vulnerable, maybe stressed, maybe left out, maybe like my masculinity / social standing / et cetera had been attacked, like I was not happy with parts of my life, and / or some other negative draining emotions that I can not describe or remember well enough.

There was some exercise equipment and pull-up / chin-up bars et cetera inside and outside, there were some men exercising, and at some point I started to exercise to as I waited for my coworkers to finish; and I did strength training like lifting weights and various body weight exercises like pull-ups and chin-ups et cetera.

My emotions were wearing me down so exercising was my way of reducing stress, wasting time, distracting myself, boosting my mood, doing something masculine, trying to challenge and strengthen myself et cetera; but I knew that this was not going to really address the negative emotional / social / mental issues that I was dealing with.

At some point I started jogging inside the store until I eventually found my family again and my female coworker DC and her daughters, and so I joined them as they walked around the store.

I remember part of the store being blocked off so we had to walk around, I remember us complaining about this as we walked, and then near the entrance to the next area we saw a very short man arguing with a woman like he was about to attack her and then another short man started to fight him.

An old man with light-color skin suggested that I break up the fight, and so I broke up the fight and I talked with them as I waited for some employees and / or security and / or the police to come but I woke up.
