I can get depressed during exercising, at times. If I go at it really hard. I think the complete exhaustion can take a momentary mental toll on me, and underlying stress (even overjoy) will present itself disguised as tears.
Anyone else experience this. It's not because I over do it, but for some reason i never feel good or happy after i excercise instead I tend to just feel blue and down and like life isn't worth anything.and I know jogging is suppose to realease endorphins, but that doesn't happen for me, for some reason.
Me too. I seriously thought it was just me.
I often found myself fighting back tears on my way back from the gym. I thought maybe it was because I find being around strangers difficult, let alone exercising in a public setting. Like maybe the pressure of it all was getting to me, but I have found I am just as emotional when I work out at home alone.
I actually started exercising to get the happy feelings it's supposed to give one, and ended up feeling worse each time.
Yes, me too. But I don't mean to compare situations.
I used to exercise for the sake of health, but now I have just started to eat healthier food. I rarely exercise because it just seems so pointless, and when I'm done, everything else looks pointless too. It just changes my perspective. I end up thinking, I'm going to die anyway, life is finite and arguably quite short, might as well enjoy it and do what I want instead of wasting my time exercising. I also used to exercise when I was stressed, maybe after I'd exercised I was too tired to contain/suppress the stress like I usually do, so it kind of bubbled up. Anyway, this is what I think happened for me, I don't mean to imply that it's the same on your end.
