Hi All,
I'm a 40y/o woman who has been living with anxiety & depression for years, so I thought I was pretty familiar with my symptoms & how they feel - but today I took myself for a walk to try & calm down & I realised how "bouncy" walking felt with the accompanying anxiety twitches, which made me giggle & I think that helped almost as much as getting myself out & moving did so I wanted to share 🙂

You're doing great.

I can't even go for a walk as too upset so continue that and take others better support than me.

Hi Purrple,

What a wonderful share!

I can imagine that finding the key to yourself is a great joy.

Every small step forward is worth it.

Well, Purrple, reading your post sure did me some good.

I wonder what wearing bouncy shoes would add to your walking? What about dancing? Other rhythmic movements, for when you can't conveniently get up and walk around?

All the best.
