I have struggled with anxiety my entire life. It’s something that I have learned to live with. I notice such a drastic improvement when I live a healthy lifestyle. The anxiety nearly disappears. I am a firm believer that how you treat your body directly impacts your mind. Running has freed me from this life-altering restraint. I love to put on good music and run next to the bay. All of the stress from the day melts away. For that brief amount of time, you don’t think about anything. I crave that momentary release.
