I always thought my mental health issues were chemical as they have been there since I was young. But every time I dance, I can literally feel a changing sensation inside my brain. It’s hard to describe but It’s uplifting.
I have thought a lot about why CrossFit training has been key to stopping my OCD. I think it boils down to being constantly challenged. In the beginning I was replacing my feelings of anxiety and self-doubt with a sense of achievement.
I learned some fundamental human psychology to better understand the triggers for my Non Epileptic Anxiety Disorder and have managed to get myself to good health again. I owe so much of that to exercise.
