What’s your 🆆 🅷 🆈 ? (warning- sappy and very personal post) I’ve had anxiety for a long time. But a few months ago, I was having anxiety attacks almost every day. At this point in my life I felt like I had lost all control of my emotions, and I wasn’t comfortable with myself from the inside out. I felt empty, and broken. Although it may sound cliché, fitness saved me. The simple act of going to the gym helped me build myself up physically, but more importantly mentally. In the gym, I was finally able to feel in control. I realized I am stronger than anything life may throw my way, and I found myself again. It has been a long road, but I’m finally starting to feel comfortable in my own skin. The amount of support I’ve gotten from each of you is more than I could ever ask for. And I’m so forever grateful for everyone that’s supported me through my ups and downs. Each day I try to be better, most importantly for you. Mental health is SO very important. If you’re going through a struggle, don’t be afraid to talk about how you’re feeling. Support makes a world of a difference. I will always be here for any of you. This piece of my life saved me from all of the darkness that tried to cloud my clear sky. Each day, remember WHY you do what you do. And who you do it for.🖤 #gymshark66 @annaxpawlowski annaxpawlowski Anna Pawlowski

I’m so happy for you girl!! I found that all areas of health matter so much that if you improve one area it tends to improve the others also! 💖 I’m glad gym has helped you, planning on going this week for my first time 😆

Fitness is amazing for controlling anxiety. However, I think becoming aware of the exact reasons why you’re feeling anxious is even more effective. Look into cognitive distortions and also narrative therapy. Those reaaallyyy helped me
