Anxiety? Depression? How to Feel Better Naturally
What if I told you there was a way to lessen your anxiety, get better sleep and improve your relationships with doing just one thing, would you want to know how? When I give you the answer, I know thoughts and feelings are going to swarm your body and brain.
A very easy way to increase your joy and lessen feeling of anxiety and depression, improve your quality of sleep and your relationships is with exercise. I am sure you already knew that. How does that make you feel when I tell you about exercising? Are you up for it? Perhaps you feel like most people. When you hear the word exercise you think about how uncomfortable you are going to feel.
I know. I think of that too! I have to psych myself up to exercise. I don’t want to be out of breath. I don’t want my muscles to burn. I don’t want to get all sweaty. When you challenge your body, you do get uncomfortable. You know what exercise did for you me? It helped me get through a difficult stage in my life.
Before I had children, I worked at a radio station in a large market. I had my own radio show. We needed sponsors to keep the show on the air. I had them for a while. Then all of the sudden the sponsorships dried up. No sponsors no show. I still worked at the station doing other tasks. It was really hard. I loved what I did so not having a show on the air for that time was really difficult. Little did I know not having a show on air would be a blessing.
I began going through a lot of loss. I had my second and third miscarriage in between the death of my very close uncle. It felt as though I was going through an entire season of loss and it was truly hard to get through life. I have struggled for years with my weight. I do not overeat, but I have some stuff that makes keeping a healthy weight difficult.
My husband and I joined the gym. I couldn’t begin to tell you how much I needed that exercise to get through a difficult season of my life. It helped me feel happier. I wasn’t as sad as I was before my workout regime. I began getting stronger. I started feeling better about myself. I felt so good after my workout. My body felt so relaxed. I liked that relaxed feeling. The way I felt afterwards kept me going back. It wasn’t always easy getting through the class, but it was so worth it for me. I would go right after work to the gym.
Not too long ago I began working out again. I was in a kickboxing class and I realized my body wouldn’t move the way I needed it too. I was under a ton of stress. I never really realized how much stress effects our bodies until that night. That night has been burned into my brain, so I never forget the negative effects stress has on my body. I literally felt like the Tin Man needing oil.
