I struggle with PTSD, TBI, depression and anxiety.. I'm a veteran that's got some bad memories.. And running and cycling is like the best best best best way for me meditate.. Gets my mind off of a lot things and helps me regroup what matters. I love hitting the heavy heavy and lifting weights as well.. When your done you just feel like you can take over the world!youll start looking better, feeling better, sleeping better. You will notice the good I promise! Better results then any pill.
