If you work out constantly yet never feel you’ve done enough, you may be struggling with a serious addiction.
Vigorous physical activity is part of a healthy lifestyle. But if you’re spending hours every day at the gym, track or court and still feel the urge to exercise more, your strenuous routine may be leading to something more serious.
In our appearance-conscious society, we often feel intense pressure to maintain a lean, muscular body. We may also enjoy the energy boost we feel after a workout, often referred to as “runner’s high.” Yet we need to watch for signs that exercise is becoming a dangerous obsession that we can’t control.
If you are concerned that you someone you care about is dealing with exercise addiction, now is the time to find professional help.
