Now, I know today’s blog post is going to offend some dedicated fitness people. That’s because we’ve learned to use the gym as a tool to help us work through our challenges in life.
But I do have a solution that will allow you to keep doing so AND work toward enjoying a better overall quality of life.
As always, I’m going to take really good care of you.
The Angst Inside – The Power To Heal
I love the gym for the sense of relief it gives me.
All of my challenges in life suddenly seem manageable after I’ve pushed myself through a hard workout.
The stress that weighs heavily on my mind is lightened when I lift heavy weights.
The tightness that taxes my mind and body loosens up with every each short, tight breath I take during my taxing cardiovascular training sessions.
Working out helps me feel better about my problems.
I’m thankful that I’ve discovered this valuable release. I’m thankful that I’ve kept it as a huge part of my life for so long.
I’d highly recommend the structured fitness lifestyle to everyone for these amazing benefits.

But no path you take in life will be all good without anything negative associated with it.
I’ve learned that feeling better doesn’t solve my problems.
Decisive, effective action will solve my problems.
I’ve learned that I must use the relief I get from training to just take the edge off.
The therapeutic qualities are only to help me regroup and refocus.
I use the gym to help me solve my challenges in life and not to make me forget about them.
The relief that you get from working out can be addictive.
No doubt about it.
I can’t allow myself to become addicted to the relief that working out gives me.
Angst can give you the power to heal.
You must use that angst effectively.
I’ve learned to leave some of that angst inside to drive me to take decisive, effective action once I step out of the gym.
That’s the only way I’ll ever become just as strong and confident outside the gym as inside of it.
This is my story.
This is my angst-filled journey.
This is my MANformation.
