DO YOU KNOW WHAT COMPULSIVE EXERCISING IS?

15 Feb 17

Compulsive exercise refers to the mind frame of an exercise addict. That person no longer desires to exercise but feels forced to do so.

The recommended workout duration for children and teens is at least 60 minutes of physical activity on most days of the week. Taking good health into consideration, if someone repeatedly exercises beyond the requirements, it indicates compulsive behavior.  

Eventually, this can breed other compulsive behavior, ranging from strict dieting to tormenting thoughts about perceived blemishes. These build up to trap the person in low self-esteem and negative thinking.

Further, these can damage connective tissues long-term; imbalance hormones and cause constant fatigue (in girls); excessively stress the heart; and plague the mind with anxiety and depression.

Exercise fanatics should watch for warning signs like not skipping workout even during sickness or injury; not enjoying exercising, yet being compelled to do so; feeling guilt and anxiety upon missing a workout session; constantly preoccupied with one’s exercise routine and bodyweight; exercising more after eating more; losing significant weight; skipping friends, activities, and responsibilities; and not satisfied with one’s own physical achievements.

If you notice some of these, do get your doctor’s help.
