We've all head that "exercise is good for anxiety" but what if that's generic advice doesn't fit your experience. What if that spin class gives you panic attack? Or just half a mile into your run your start to experience high anxiety? What if it seems like anxiety is making your symptoms worse? You're not alone. Join me in today's conversation around exercise induced anxiety, why it happens, and what you can do about it. Today's conversation combines my almost 15 years of experience in the fitness space with what I do now as an anxiety & depression coach in a real and informative way. Hit play to learn more!
✨ 3 Takeaways from this episode:
The same workout that helps someone else discharge some of the extra stress energy in their body might add to the stress load in yours. There is no universal. Reflect on the few theories I shared in this episode and see which one feels like the best fit for your experience.
Avoiding exercise completely just reinforces the anxiety and the research is absolutely clear that physical activity is supportive for mental and physical health. Be willing to experiment and get creative vs writing a narrative that exercise just isn’t for you.
Get support. Whether that’s from us in 1:1 coaching or the RISE membership, your therapist or someone else – No generic podcast advice can ever take the place of a mental health professional who knows your exact experience and is willing to get in the weeds of your healing journey to help you crease a personalized solution.
