That's great!

I've gotten back into exercise recently within the past three months after a year of sporadic physical activity. I found that if I changed my goals and expectations, I am more willing to workout consistently. Its the small changes to my fitness level I notice each week that keeps me going.

Did you run the whole 17 minutes ? I'm starting out with a mix of walking and jogging (but mostly walking )

Exercise is helpful to me because it
- Helps me sleep since I'll be tired
- Lends a helping hand to my digestive system
- Improves mood
- Increases motivation (if I go out for a walk, then maybe I can come back and do the dishes?
I'm sure many have seen the video "Make Your Bed" by Admiral William H. McRaven on YouTube. I believe the concept is the same

John 3:16 (NIV) For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

No you didn't, it's the terminator, it's going to get up again no matter how many times you put it down... : /






And all our yesterdays have lighted fools the way to dusty death
Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow,
A poor player that strut's and fret's his hour upon the stage and is heard no more,
It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

It's a temporary relieve. And it's good for one's health. Especially if making a routine of it. Exercise does indeed relieve anxiety and stress. But labeling it as a "kill" is jumping the gun and mostly just your over-excitement talking.

The truth is strictly what the ones in power perceives it to be.

Enjoy any good things, even the little and menial ones, as you will never know what impending distresses could descend upon you in a moment.

I just finished playing basketball. I have all this extra energy that I dont know what to do with. Usually I would be using it to try to socialize awkwardly, but because of quarantine, I cant. =(

I killed it with my Vorpal sword but it respawned.

I love Society. It is entirely composed now of beautiful idiots and brilliant lunatics. Just what Society should be.

used to help me too when I was suffering from anxiety,


the more you incorporate activities that noticeably help into a regular routine, then you can start perhaps to rebuild.


I used to put a daily routine together, which sometimes I forced myself to complete if I wasnt feeling great, and it really helped. I still do it now even tho no mood issues for 6 years or so.

**** your feelings !!

Then imagine what you can do if you run longer? You will ripe its head off.

Seriously, albeit it's in no way a cure to sa, it's still very useful, especially if you have park or a garden not so far from home.

Thats true because their is no permanent cure atm. I think it mostly breaks down to brain chemicals. But exercising is a great way to manage it. It increases testosterone which decreases social anxiety.

The best and most useful cardio is to actually keep your pulse high for around 30min. It's not THAT hard on a treadmill. But then again if you're not used to moving a lot then you might need to work your way into this.

Cardio has been proven to essentially help restore/heal damaged brain cells, make it easier for it to deal with stress and depression. Don't describe this as popping xanax as in fact it's much more sustainable. Especially if you are going through med changes / withdrawals or are in a stressful period of your life.

Anxiety always tags along on my runs and is in some damn fine shape. I've yet to beat him..... but endorphins do stun him a bit.

...you gotta keep the goal in mind, develop tunnel vision to a certain extent. it's hard, and it's not for everyone.

Running works. Cycling and the gym do, too.

I know what you mean. I have observed my anxiety levels before a run and after the run, its pretty much 80% gone. You can feel it ooze away during the run too, when you reach the peak of your workout.

Dammit how do I post a gif of Theoden screaming "DEATH! DEATH!"?

Excercise just works. When I was down riding the bike would help a lot.

Flowers will grow from these wounds.
