It's too cold today to go out, but we've been spoiled with a mild winter...

Thankfully I have 3 state parks within a few miles from my house so I find going to walk in the park very helpful, peaceful. Now, I do need to lose weight and do more brisk walking and cardio to be able to start losing weight, but not only am I lazy but also when I exercise and get my heart rare up I start feeling anxious and panicky, I know it's because my heart rate is up like when I have a panic attack, it's just hard to separate the 2 sometimes. Like, I have to tell myself that it's just because I'm exercising and not because I'm having an actual panic attack. But...I will keep on pushing because I have to and I need to if I wanna get better.

So I had been doing my workouts at home (I have an elliptical machine in my apartment) but was really getting bored with it.  I also didn't have any weights or anything and that was something I was really missing.  Had been thinking of joining a gym so finally did it...and signed up for some personal training twice a week for a year.  OH MY GOD...it's going to kill me. I've had two sessions.  Today was lower body.  I have weak muscles from not doing any strength/resistance training...and it really shows....and boy do I feel it. Oh well.  Slow and steady and hopefully it will get easier with time.

You are so right hug4U! Walking is an excellent form of exercise and an excellent way to boost your mood. If you add mindful walking and/or walking in nature then you increase your benefits even more.  I personally enjoy mindful walking.
 
Cardio and yoga are also great options!
 
I wonder how other members include exercise into their daily schedule?

Thanks for sharing.

I find exercise essential for my anxiety.  If my anxiety peaks...a good hard cardio workout followed by some gentle yoga is very helpful.

Taking a walk can really take me out of my funk, and it helps my body digest! It's so accessible and easy too - no need for a gym, equipment, etc. I'm going divide my groceries into 7 days, and get my exercise that way, possibly. Mom had to do it out of financial need, and it's no wonder she lived so long.
