Is it normal to have this overwhelming need to walk
« on: April 08, 2014, 06:48:16 PM »
go and burn energy? I feel like I can't relax today until I go do a long walk.

Is this how a normal person feels? I don't even know..

Hi NMT...

For people with anxiety disorders, pacing is a very normal, physiological response of the body to burn-up that anxious energy.

So I would say that when you can't relax, and feel the need to go on a long walk, it is simply your body's way of telling you that it needs to burn-up that restless energy.  A perfectly normal response.

The very best to you, NMT!...  Chuck :grinning-smiley-003:

Hi NMT...

By the way, daily exercise is a wonderful form of treatment for both anxiety and depressive disorders.  Exercise stimulates those "feel good" chemicals such as endorphins, and it also actually stimulates the growth of new brain cells and their connections in the hippocampus region of the brain.  Brain cells in this region can become damaged or destroyed by stress hormones such as cortisol.

The very best to you, NMT!...  Chuck :grinning-smiley-003:
