and does it help your anxiety?
I don't work out, sorry. Don't believe in it.
I started working out once again. I try to do it every day and yes it helps me deal with anxiety a whole lot. However, now if I skip a day or two I'm more anxious. I'm also trying to eat better more nutritious stuff and I know it helps me as well.
Having said that, I never work out, lol. I used to do yoga every day (which barely counts as it is), jogging and super light weights just to keep toned but then I got busy and couldn't be bothered anymore. It did have a good impact on me when I did it, though. Much less anxiety especially from the yoga.
I try to work out 5 out of 7 days. I alternate between weight training and aerobics. I try to do as much naturally as I can. I love the outdoors and will hike, ski, bike, scuba. Being active keeps me from ruminating, and sitting on my [BEEP] and just eating and feeling sorry for myself. And a lot of the things I like to do doesn't require doing it in a group, which suits me just fine. So the benefits to me: endorphin boost, much needed positive alone time, and the physical benefits.
Never be bullied into silence.
Never allow yourself to be made a victim.
Accept no one's definition of your life;
Not long if I do, and I don't keep a scheldule. It's supposed to help depression, but it hasn't seemed to have really done much. But then, I'm not really doing much of it. =/
3+ times a week. I've never done it to help anxiety. I do it to help my depression, which, meh...sort of works? I guess. Mostly though I just need to work out and that's why I bother at all.
The only work-out I get is running around like crazy at work, and it does't help anxiety
"I am the Wanderer
I've seen many a shore
But the road I long the most to go
Is closed for evermore"
I workout 6 to 7 days a week, but I consider making art a workout. It's like a standing plank. I lift weights and I walk uphill on a treadmill and I use a stair climber. But I have a herniated disk so some days all I can do is swim, and the days the disk isn't bothering me I have degenerative arthritus and any kind of movement seems to be good for the arthritus including walking on the treadmill, using the stair climber, and even surfing.
Since I have a herniated disk I have had to make a lot of adjustments. I can't deadlift 400 pounds 3 times, but I can deadlift 50 pounds 20 times on my good days and I can go all out on the bench press. I stay in shape mainly so I can surf. I workout during the winter so I can surf in the summer.
I don't get a signature.
Once in a while I ride my exercise bike for 2 miles in 10 min. That just about kills me.
I have congenital heart problems and degenerative and arthritic back problems that make me feel pain AS IF I work out all the time even tho I don't, lol. I hate exercising, yet love eating, so I better figure out something.... I still look good for my age, but I would like to feel better too.
And it doesn't do crap for anxiety! But I have felt the endorphin effect for depression or just lifting your mood.....but it goes away after after about an hour. Is that normal?
I like to do some kind of exercise everyday, maybe 30 minutes twice a day. Sitting around is so dull. It's easy to do some stuff while you're watching music videos or something.
It's the only thing that helps my anxiety.
