The other day I posted about struggling with unknowns of surgery, and I want to be clear that I could care less if my body changes appearance-wise during recovery.โฃ
โฃ
What worries me most is how Iโ€™ll be able to move physically.โฃ
โฃ
I used to work out to โ€˜๐˜ฃ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ด๐˜ฌ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜ฏ๐˜บโ€™ and โ€˜๐˜ต๐˜ฐ ๐˜ฃ๐˜ถ๐˜ณ๐˜ฏ ๐˜ค๐˜ข๐˜ญ๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ๐˜ช๐˜ฆ๐˜ดโ€™. โฃ

Then I learned better. โฃ
โฃ
I started working out to feel good in my own skin. โฃ
I started working out to enhance my health. โฃ
I started working out because I enjoyed it. โฃ
I started working out because it became ๐ฆ๐ฒ ๐ญ๐ก๐ž๐ซ๐š๐ฉ๐ฒ. โฃ

Fitness has become a huge mental outlet for me. Itโ€™s a way to clear my mind, beat depression, tackle my anxiety, and just improve my mindset overall. โฃ
โฃ
But what this is teaching me is to find new and different outlets to improve my mindset, manage anxiety, and letโ€™s be honest, get through 2021 in general. โฃ
โฃ
Lately Iโ€™ve been focusing on things like more family time, getting outside for walks, more time with friends, journaling & reading more, listening to podcasts, and seeking support when I need it. They have all been huge, and will continue to be incredible tools as I heal and scale back on my regular activity. โฃ
โฃ
I always want to be fully transparent and remind you that it is 100% okay to take a break, rest & recover, BUT it is also 100% okay to feel anxiety about that rest & recovery too. โฃ
โฃ
& just in case you havenโ€™t yet discovered what an amazing tool fitness can be for therapy, I want to encourage you to get moving. Not to burn off calories or change your body, but to enhance your health & improve your mindset. โฃ
