4 Reason Exercise Helps Combat Depression

Do you struggle with depression❓🙁 Unfortunately, it is a pretty common occurrence. And that is why I feel compelled to ask you.

It may look different in each of us but usually, it comes with:

- Low moods

- Frequent bouts of paralyzing fatigue and lack of motivation

- The bed, the couch, the house seem like better places to be than outdoors, around people, engaging in physical activities.

Not because deep down you do not enjoy other people, places and things to do but rather because you feel so low and do not have the energy for any of it

Trust me when I say, I get it ….

Been there and even stayed there for a very long time…. I’m talking no eating, nothing but sleeping and crying not even knowing why, isolating myself from those I loved most, laying around with no motivation or energy…. And at my very lowest I sure contemplated taking my own life due to my own feelings of worthlessness.

But I'm not there anymore

It took a lot of work rebuilding myself and that even included being medicated for my anxiety and my depression, but that was not going to be a life-long solution and I understood that. So I figured out how to cope through proper nutrition, exercise, and a strong mindset 💪 and made it a lifestyle🔑

There is no shame in this …. And the reason I MUST speak on it because so many of you are suffering in silence and I WANT you to know that someone out there understands you and is available for you!
