Interrupt Flow Of Negative Thoughts
Most types of mental illness such as depression, anxiety, and obsessive-compulsive disorder have a form of unwanted thoughts, whether it is wondering if you left the oven on, worrying about something you said or what might happen, or negative thoughts about self-image. Exercise is a phenomenal way to interrupt the flow of these unwanted thoughts. It gives the individual a chance to focus on the exact body movements - such as how they are bending their arms and keeping their ab muscles tight when doing a push-up - instead of these intruding thoughts. Of course, the difficulty of doing this depends on the individual exercising, but with practice, there is a clear link between interrupting these thoughts and regular exercise. Make it part of your routine for the best results.
