Do you work out to deal with your emotions? There are so many messages out there that exercise will make you happier, healthier, and thinner…but none of these assumptions are a given, especially when movement is your only way to regulate or have a good day. This episode will explore the connection between exercise and emotions—unpacking the much more nuanced reality in order to broaden our understanding from the simplistic “exercise = happiness” equation. Opal: Food + Body Wisdom’s Co-Founder and head of the Exercise + Sport Program, Kara Bazzi, LMFT, CEDS sits down with host and therapist Carter Umhau, LMHC to talk overexercise, exercise avoidance, and how the inclusion of emotion in movement can be a place of beauty and healing.
