Exercise Addiction: Fitness Addiction, Running Addiction, Gym Addiction Counselling London
Addiction To Exercise We all know it's healthy to exercise. Exercise is an enjoyable way to increase our energy, relieve stress and promote wellness. It can be a release. Exercise can give us a "high", peak experiences, as we generate endorphins and we can be addicted to endorphins. Counselling can explore this further with us. Our motivation for exercise may also include a desire to control our weight or body shape. Some of us may have become fixated on burning calories or losing weight, addicted to the gym or addicted to fitness in general. Obsessive exercise (fitness obsession, gym obsession, running obsession, exercise obsession) may have taken its hold. It can be as if we have developed an exercise addiction, adhering to a strict, rigid fitness schedule. In the habit of compulsive exercise, compulsive running we may be unable to stop, as if our urge to exercise must always prevail, even if we are unwell or injured. With our "exercise addiction", even if we are in pain, we will try to exercise through this, often against the medical advice because it is our priority. Used to our familiar exercise regime, we may struggle to replace it with anything else, and promise to cut down exercising another time. With our "fitness addiction" (exercise addiction, running addiction, gym addiction), we may prefer to work out alone (even avoiding gym staff or personal trainers), always having to exercise daily for at least a few hours. Addicted to exercise, our relationships, partner, work, responsibilities and obligations, other areas of our life may be put on a back burner or neglected. Some may feel depressed and develop low esteem or repress our anger. Grief and loss may underpin our feelings. In our own world, however much we exercise, it is not enough and we may have become too dependent on exercise. Ironically too much exercise can lead to stress. We may be addicted to running, addicted to gym or addicted to fitness. In our need to continuously exercise, other personal needs may have been overlooked. Freeing our life up may be important. We may have blocked out, shut down uncomfortable feelings, thoughts. Focusing on our body, exercise, we may feel disconnected, unbalanced, from other aspects of us - our feelings, thoughts, sexuality, spirituality. Exercise addiction treatment can be offered to help overcome our fitness addiction, running addiction, gym addiction, exercise addiction. We may also have an eating disorder, like bulimia, which may need to be treated.
Exercise Addiction - Body Types Certain sports require certain body types, like gymnastics, dancing, ice skating, or being a jockey. Some of us may over exercise, take too much exercise or not take enough rest between exercise and recovery. We may struggle to regain the energy we have spent, making space for recovery, so we feel consistently energised. The addiction counselling and psychotherapy can discuss this in our work together.
Exercise Addiction - Sports Injuries Excessive exercise might not always be good for us. We may have developed niggling injuries, which become more serious and painful, or never quite heal. We may have injuries in our ligaments, tendons, bones and joints, or get stress fractures. We may turn to addiction counselling to help overcome being addicted to exercise.
