I did not want to do anything because I was fearful of interacting with people at work and school.
There was absolutely nothing I looked forward to every morning.
I’ve come to realize that the acute bouts of stress that I experienced at that time, along with the inability to relieve that stress, worsened my depression and anxiety.

I had poor sleep hygiene.
I didn’t engage in any sort of physical activity.
But once I introduced physical activity into my life, things changed.
Pushing myself towards physical activity helped with my depression and anxiety, and I wanted to reveal to you what helped.
So let’s talk about exercise and how it became a powerful tool to help me conquer my anxiety!
