Overcoming Mental Health Obstacles to Exercise


1.   Feeling exhausted: When you’re tired or stressed you might feel like working out, will make you more exhausted. The truth is that exercise is a powerful source of energy. Studies show that regular exercise can dramatically reduce fatigue and increase your energy.

2.   Feeling overwhelmed: The idea of “one more thing” can clearly be a deal-breaker. Remember that exercise helps us do everything BETTER.  If you think of exercise as a priority, you WILL find a way to fit it into your schedule.

3.   Feeling hopeless: If you start at “ground zero” you can still be successful. Start slow with low-impact exercises and watch your progress.

4.   Feeling bad about yourself If you are critical of your body, it’s TIME to change the channel. Don’t think that you are alone, try surrounding yourself with people who are like you. Accomplishing even the smallest of goals will help you gain “body confidence.”
