How does working out help you relieve mental
I have suffered my entire life with eating disorders if I am utterly honest... Working out led me to learn about how important nutrients were and how important food was/is. It has helped give me insight into myself and ease the mental push that tells me to follow my old rules on food. It has also helped me see that food was never the enemy; my thought process was. Finally, it has pushed me to research how food fuels our bodies and why we need to eat certain things.
And while initially working out was a way to take control of at least one aspect of my life, weight, and food, it grew into my stress relief. Of course, when I feel like I am at my wit's end, I can turn to the gym, yoga, cardio, or any type of exercise. And while doing so, I find that happy place where the endorphins are released. While my stress is still there, it begins to feel not quite so big.
