Fitness and anxiety

Working out has become my life savior. I have been feeling so anxious lately that I didn’t even think straight anymore. My body hurting in various parts. In my mind this pain was due to an incurable illness…. Today that my anxiety has someway subsided I feel totally idiotic. My body tried to cope with my overworking mind. It sent messages of alarm to stop this circle of craziness : being anxious provoking pain provoking new anxiety.

I found out for myself that working out helped to clear my mind. During gym session I only focus on my goal lying ahead. There’s no place un my head for intrusive thoughts.
