Frank, funny, and sympathetic, this fitness book offers realistic tips, encouragement, and dozens of activity ideas for times when exercise is the only thing that will help—and the last thing you want to do.
Exercise is the most reliable way to improve mental health. But if you’re depressed, anxious, burned out, or struggling, it may feel impossible to get started, get serious, or even get up.
Written by an neurodivergent exercise professional, Work It Out busts myths about fitness while providing clear, actionable advice on how to:
Incorporate exercise into your daily life
Build an adjustable workout plan for both good and bad mental health days
Shake off the messages that say you’re never doing enough
Set up a workout log that motivates you in exactly the way you need
Celebrate all your achievements, including getting out of bed
But also get a little exercise in bed, if that’s where you are today
Work It Out meets you where you are—even if you’re lying on the floor.
