A lot for me personally. I’ve worked out every day for the last 19 months. Gives me a focus, gets me out of bed and gives me some confidence. It is hard but making it a habit has helped tremendously. Cut a lot of alcohol which helps both mentally and makes working out easier. I used to work out 3-4 days a week but would often go 2-4 days without working out and make excuses. Changing it to every day has helped a lot more than a few days a week.

I workout 4-5 times a week and it has helped me so much in my mental health. It has helped me control my anxiety because for me it's that thing that I KNOW I have control over. It's also usually that hour to an hour and a half where I disconnect from work, my friends and family and just focus on ME. I'm not thinking about everything else when I'm exercising. Working out and overall taking care of body more has helped me sleep better which/feel more rested which is always a plus for my mental health. As D1 said also, it's helped me gain some confidence in myself as well so my self esteem (which was almost always in the gutter) has definitely improved a lot

I feel like a million bucks when I’m at the gym. Literally one of the only things I can say I truly love. If I’m not there my mental health issues don’t magically go away, but it’s nice to know you really are fit, look good, feel good, and are great at something

I'm sorry if this is out of place, but is anyone interested in coming on my veteran podcast? I work for a Nonprofit Organization that provides supportive services to veterans in CA, NV and AZ and our podcast discusses issues relevant to veterans. I'm organically searching for veterans who are willing to talk about their experiences, mental health and healthcare, employment, case management, housing for the homeless, etc. We don't require you to be an expert on anything.
