Pickleball and relieving anxiety
Saturday, November 30, 2019
I have found Pickleball as an amazing source of exercise that has been very successful for me in working through anxiety and depression. I will play many days as much as 3 hours as its so much more rewarding for me, and fun, then the machines.
The ability to talk to so many people during the workout really helps get my mind off the things that I find my OCD takes me to , resulting in the depression. I would highly encourage those who can to find a sport that you can play that gives you a lot of cardio as well as social involvement.
I like pickleball as its very easy on the joints, it doesn't give me my reoccurring tendinitis, and it burns off a lot of calories. I have lost over 40 lbs since starting to play it a little over a year ago. It has taken off weight I had tried for over 40 years to take of otherwise. It sure works for me both with weight loss and anxiety/depression.
