Feeling too low to workout?
Exercise helps with low mood and depression… BUT... it can feel like the hardest thing in the world to get started when you're down.
It’s a vicious cycle. You don’t feel like moving because you feel low. Your hormones get messed up because you're not moving and that makes you feel even less like doing anything!
So what to do?
When you're feeling low you can pick a tiny habit that you are 100% sure you can complete daily. Pick something so small that you can muster up the energy to do it no matter how you're feeling. For example - it could be a 5 min stretch routine and/or walk around the block.
What you feel you can stick to will be very unique to you. Choose what works for you.
To sum up. Your mission - should you choose to accept it - is -
This helps three fold -
Of course, the more you exercise the more pronounced these outcomes are but... if you jump in the deep end with crazy intense workouts that leave you feeling like crap and unable to do anything the next day, your depression will kick your butt!
I promise if you start with something doable, you can build on it and start to have regular exercise as one of your happy mood buoyancy aids!
