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.

Do you Fitbit?

I have discovered Fitbit in 2014. Fitbit offers a large range of fitness trackers doubled with a free app and great community. 

I started with the simple bracelet which counts your steps, the calories burnt, wakes you in the morning with a discreet vibration and allows to analyze your sleep quality.

I soon wanted more information about my physical activities. So I treated myself to the Fitbit HR2. My daughter got it now. This bracelet even counts the stories you are climbing and analyzes your heartrate. But you cannot change the bracelet.

Sooooooo…. Here I am with my latest toy the Blaze by Fitbit. 

The pictures show the kind of analysis you can obtain. 

You can do quite a lot of activities without having to use your phone.

Yes, I forgot but Fitbit offers a cool app for Android or Apple. There is even a community if you like to share your activities and challenges. And what is important too, you can register your diet plan. Write down the quantity of calories absorbed. The app suggests a lot of pre-registered food. 

You can define different goals in the app, like a minimum number of steps to do per day, quantity of water to drink, hours of sleep …..

Fit again

I wanted to do my workout sessions alone at home. Finally I decided to go back to fitness club. It’s much more motivating to see other people work out. 

How about you? What is your fitness life like? What are your goals?

Would love to exchange with you.
