Hi Ashley, Im not rewarding after the program, but its a good idea to think. I dont have nothing special and easy to get that give me joy I think, but may be its me who didnt work a bit around that idea. I was thinking of food or buying something, but that brings a regret later.
I really love practising exercice, I think its comparable to a meditative state, because our thought process decrease to almost nothing. Im doing bodybuilding and the few things Im able to think on those moments is just counting from 1 to 10 that is the number of repetitions Im doing on an exercice. I feel the most conected to my soul at that moment, because I can hear some silence inside of me.
I would love to invest more on that, like feeling that is my second job. I already practise acrobatic gimnastic when teenager for a year I never forget that, the chalenge of seeing our body doing things that at the begining are impossible, give me much pleasure.
Your question maid me think that may be I can incorporate 15 minuts in the morning when I wake up to do some gimnastic. I already do 1 hour at the end of the afternon, but having my day with more physical activities seams a dream.
Also I would like to ask you a question that intrigues me very much. With the sheet of activitys Ive been aware that Im only depressed during the day, that at night practicaly my depression go away. I start feeling good, more energetic, more entusiastic, making plans for the next days...but during the day just going out of bed is a strugle. I think may be my melatonin is normal. I dont know also if its my social anxiety since I know everibody is sleeping and I dont see people, I dont think about other people, so I dont get triggers.
I would like also to thank you for always being so suportive and have warm words to tell everibody and to me. A few years ago I also did this program for anxiety, and my panick attacks gone in one year, and I had it for 20 years, so there arent enough words to thank all of you.
