Exercise Program

"Those who think they have not time for bodily exercise
will sooner or later have to find time for illness."

Edward Stanley

"I have appreciated Dr. O'Brien and how she has helped me understand my life. In short, I guess I look to her as more than a therapist (in the truest sense of the word). She has been a blessing in my life. Thank You Dr. O'Brien" - A Patient

Exercising greatly enhances your self-esteem and mental outlook while reducing stress. It is never too late to start a work-out program to best build toward your goal of improved self-image, and always too early to stop exercising.

Exercise is necessary for your physical and mental health. Sudden, seasonal, bursts of energy towards getting in shape come and go with the ever-changing weather. What is important is that maintaining some form of physical exercising, beyond your every day cycle, helps reduce anxiety while building emotional strength. How? Physical strain weakens pent-up, nervous, energy; that would otherwise fester and brew harshly within you. One theory suggests that endorphins, a chemical the pituitary gland produced during vigorous exercise, improve your mood. Regular exercise also decreases the risk of heart disease and cancer, and there seems to be a connection between these illnesses and depression.

Below is a list of other health-related benefits.
