7-Day Depression Buster Challenge

I have heard from many of my clients that they understand how beneficial exercise can be in order to lift their mood and make them feel better. However, for most of them, when in low energy, depressed, and discouraged state, just the thought of getting out there and working out can be overwhelming.  And this is when self-discipline comes in place.  Pushing yourself and doing things that are uncomfortable at first, takes a lot of discipline and courage.  But the outcome waiting for you on the other side is so worth it.

According to a research study by Dr. Andrea Dunn patients who did the equivalent of 35 minutes’ walking, six days per week, experienced a reduction in their level of depression by 47 percent.  This study, conducted at the Cooper Research Institute in Dallas, Texas, shows that as little as three hours of regular exercise a week reduces the symptoms of mild to moderate depression as effectively as Prozac and other antidepressants.

I have been thinking about how to motivate my clients and all of you reading this post to get out there and give it a try.  And so I came up with an idea of starting a new FB group, where we can share if this really works and if these research facts apply to you!  Let’s get your grove on and lift your mood!

So here is what to do to participate and put this to the test:

  1. Sign up by putting in your email below. Once I receive your email, I will then invite you to join the challenge group.
  2. You should walk/jog/run for 35 minutes a day for 7 days in a row.  Your tempo and speed do not matter. I would prefer if you did this outdoors; however, I understand that that may not be an option for all of you, so treadmill is fine.
  3. Note how you feel before and after each exercise session. Log in to your FB challenge group and tell us how you felt before and after your walk. You can take pics of yourself or anything that caught your interest on your walk and post it as well.
  4. In order to make your results measurable, you should do this 7 days in a row and to tell us your progress. If you have to take a break or cannot complete, you can always start again from day 1. There is no time limit on this challenge as of now.
  5. You are welcome to do this with your partner, friend, children, or pets.  They can even take pictures of you.
  6. HAVE FUN WITH IT!  You so can do this!!

Get Your Groove On!
