Woah, now Emily? Are you saying that exercise is bad? Well, I’m not saying that, but I’m delving into the different mindsets that can go into exercise. Some can be really harmful, and another is very beneficial, life-giving, wonderful, and beautiful. I would be against one mindset, but by God’s grace, my perspective on exercise has been changing especially in the past year.
God made us for a reason.
I didn’t really grasp that reason for a long time. I had to ask myself the other day. ‘Why did I exercise before/during the eating disorder, and how has my thinking changed in the past year of huge leaps in healing and recovery?’
