A few years ago, I suffered from severe depression.
I was exhausted pretty much all the time plus never wanted to get out of bed.
Starting an exercise program was the last thing I wished to do. My mother signed me up to meet with a personal trainer. She had done a good amount of research plus learned that exercise has proven to improve all sorts of health concerns, including arthritis, diabetes plus high blood pressure. According to what my mother read, exercise can also greatly improve mood plus lessen anxiety. I met with the personal trainer plus exercise proved to be the nicest solution for me. Working out helped to take my mind off my complications plus broke the cycle of those horrible thoughts. I’ve learned that strenuous activity releases feel-good endorphins plus natural brain chemicals that promote a strong sense of well-being! The personal trainer set up a series of fitness goals for me. As I worked to achieve those goals, I actually gained confidence plus enjoyed a sense of accomplishment. I gradually started to feel way stronger plus better about my appearance. Interacting with the personal trainer was constantly a positive experience, plus I looked forward to interacting with new people at the gym on a regular basis. I had tried alcohol, drugs plus solitude, plus those methods made my symptoms substantially worse. Exercise plus physical activity completely changed my life. The personal trainer encouraged me to try anything that works the muscles, whether it’s going for a walk or pulling weeds or cleaning my property. I also included structured exercises under the supervision of the personal trainer! He mixed things up with weight training, cardio, stretching plus static holds. As I started feeling stronger, I took an interest in playing tennis, riding my bicycle plus kayaking.
