Secrets of fighting schizophrenia: Physical Fitness

I exercise intensely every day.
I show good results, but it takes me hours to recover after that.
There is a HUGE difference in my fitness between trained and untrained.
I count on being able to continue exercising every day.

What I recommend to you is to exercise every day, preferably intense aerobic exercise.
It is great, it will help you cope with your symptoms.


Hi @Chess24 I would like to exercise intensively, but I don’t know how to do this.


I totally agree with you, @Chess24. Fitness makes a big difference in sz/sza symptoms. And that is backed up by research. I know anecdotally that it works. It works for me. And all I do is yoga and play my digital piano everyday.


Omg, intense exercise is better than 2 xanax at taking the edge off. You release happy endorphins. Plus, it’s healthy! 7 days is too much though…gotta take at least one rest day or becomes self destructive. Had fun kicking ass on some cardio today. My heart tolerated some intense tempo workout😎. Man feels good to have hobbies!


Yeah I’m all for it as well. I’ve noticed a big difference just getting a little bit fitter but doing exercise everyday is the way to go! I think you get great benefits for your mental health!

All you need to learn now is meditation too?

I’ve never understood meditating. You just sit there silently doing nothing without thought. I do that all the time. But there is a meditation. More like automatic writing but you esentially think something out through writing.

I exercise 3 days a week. I usually sprint a mile first and get my heart-rate up super high and then lift weights for a little bit. I workout for about 30 - 40 minutes but I’m usually breathing hard throughout the time.

I remember before I relapsed I was working a job working 12 hour shifts and was walking a lot and I had just quit taking my medications and even then me walking that much kept the symptoms away to the point where it went into remission so exercise definitely helps.

Just sitting and surfing or watching TV all day will turn anyone BrainDead.
