If you are feeling blue, the last thing you want to do is go outside for a walk or run or head to the gym but that is that is probably best thing for your stress, depression and anxiety.

Keep fighting and keep going, you will get there and once you workout you will have that sense of accomplishment in yourself, something you make you proud and happy with yourself.

Regular exercise has many psychological and emotional benefits, too. It can help you:

Gain more confidence and increased self-esteems as you body and mind are stronger and can handle the up and downs of life.

Take your mind off anxiety and depressive thoughts. Take a break from your own mind and join a fitness class, get outside or just go to the gym with your headphones, crank up the tunes and just escape from life for that precious ME time or SELF-CARE!!!

Get out of the house and socialize with others. Exercise and physical activity may give you the chance to meet or socialize with others. Just exchanging a friendly smile or greeting as you walk around your neighborhood can help your mood.

Cope in a healthy ways. It will feel much better to get a natural high from exercise, believe me, you will be happy, healthy, strong and fit and feel much better in the morning.

Let’s all encourage each other to live the best life that we can full of fitness and fun.
 Fitness is for everyone, and can be extremely beneficial for people with anxiety and depression, I speak from experience as I have suffered from both and exercise really helped me.
