Exercise for OCD and anxiety

Yesterday I started my exercise routine that is part of my treatment for my OCD and anxiety! 30 minutes of cardio a day! At least 3 days a week at the gym and the rest running outside/inside or 30 minutes of cardio in my room.

It felt really good to finally be getting started with it because truthfully I have been putting it off for a long time just because it’s an extra thing to have on my plate, and I’m already so busy in college!

Well, yesterday I put it on my plate with everything else, and I’m going to keep it up! It felt really good to get it done, and feel like I accomplished something that I know is good for me. I will let you guys know how it goes and how it affects my anxiety when I get in a more regular routine with it :)




  1. Working out/playing sports always works for me. It’s almost as if doing that stuff completely turns off whatever causes my tics. I wish I could work out all the time.

    • Joshua I understand exactly what you’re saying. I have to walk my dog for a half hour everyday after school. When I’m doing this I listen to music and its like my tics never existed!!
