Someone explain please
My lifters with depression and anxiety, and the habits that stem from them, how do you manage it?
I've been lifting for a little more than a year but it's on and off. Exercise often helps with my day-to-day symptoms but when I'm in a really bad episode it can fuck with my routine and I end up stress eating or drinking very heavily and frequently, getting caught in a cycle. I actively work on the stress eating through sheer mental discipline and by having foods like pickles, celery, and chewing gum around in case I break, been taking steps to help with drinking problem, and have been seeing a counselor but it's slow and only helps so much.
