How should I get my unmotivated body to work out?

How should I get my unmotivated body to work out?

Well.: I would probably start by turning off the tv, getting off the couch or lazy boy and throwing away the bag of cheetos. You need to start with a realistic schedule so as to not get discouraged. Go for a walk, ride a bike. Do something outdoors so as to make it not seem like you are working out. If you enjoy what you are doing it will help. Change your diet. Its all about small baby steps.

I gained weight rapidly over the years now self conscious embarrassed crying often lonely unmotivated too anxious to get a haircut. Is this depression?

Yes, get help: You are describing classic symptoms of depression, including feeling too bad about yourself to get a haircut. Although your weight gain makes it, harder to be around people, gaining weight probably marked the start of your depression. Talking with someone about what was going on when you started gaining, and how you have been since can help. Sometimes meds along with therapy is most helpful. ...Read more

I'm depressed and fight anxiety, extremely fatigued, very stressed out. I don't want to take medication, dr doesn't support this. What can help me get bak on track? I am just so tired and unmotivated.

Alternatives: Your dr might be right and the best course of action would be meds. However, as a patient, and mostly if there is no serious risk to you or others, you may consider non-pharmacological approaches (psychotherapy, other alternative approved tools). Lifestyle changes (you mention stress, fatigue, anxiety; vacation, diet, leisure, sports, etc) along with dr guidance/checkups, may do miracles sometimes. ...Read more

What could be making me feel tired even after I wake up in the morning? I feel tired and unmotivated but I can still do things (physically). 22 y.O?

Myriad of Reasons...: There could be quite a few reasons why you feel tired even after you wake up in the morning. I would start by seeing your primary care physician for a full physical. Lots of times, people who are depressed have similar symptoms. Complete this assessment (http://www. Mayoclinic. Com/health/depression/mh00103_d) and talk to a mental health provider. ...Read more

Hello. I used to be very lazy in school and was generally very unmotivated. At the same time I had a bully. Could this be the cause of my bad grades

Hello. I used to be very lazy in school and was generally very unmotivated. At the same time I had a bully. Could this be the cause of my bad grades

Could be the bully.: Honestly, it's very difficult to be successful in your schoolwork, and even to have the motivation to go to school at all, if you know that when you get to school you'll encounter a bully. People who are bullied at school can get bad grades as they're too distracted by the bully to concentrate. Sometimes they're even truant so they don't have to face the bully. ...Read more

Get evaluated: Your sx could be either medical, psychological, or both. You have to rule out medical causes first:i would recommend contacting your physician asking for complete work up. If results are normal, then you might want to speak to a psychologist to figure out what causing stress. If there';s abnormality, you still might want to enlist help of a psychologist to improve coping. ...Read more

If I don't drink it I feel tired and unmotivated. Could all this be an addiction to caffeine?

If I don't drink it I feel tired and unmotivated. Could all this be an addiction to caffeine?

Possibly.: Caffeine can be addictive. Getting free of the addiction is easier if you replace it with something healthy that increases heart rate and circulation and causes endorphins to be secreted (they make you feel good). My recommendation is to do aerobic exercise (with your physician's approval only) which will accomplish all of the above. It will also make you much healthier than caffiene! ...Read more

Why does Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) 70mg make me feel lazy and unmotivated? What shold I do?

Why does Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) 70mg make me feel lazy and unmotivated? What shold I do?

Could be side effect: Two possibilities come to mind: 1) perhaps, compared to your energy level off stimulants, you "feel" different and interpret that as lazyness; or, 2) it may be a genuine side effect, because some people do report a "zombie" effect with stimulants. In either case, might try a lower dose and see if you can get benefit without that feeling. Or, try a different adhd medication. ...Read more

DM complications: I agree with Dr Venter that Diabetics have a high propensity for developing depression. However also exclude poorly controlled diabetes with either too many hypos or hypers - can be excluded with continuous glucose monitoring e.g. Abbott Freestyle Libre.
Also exclude B12 deficiency commonly seen in Metformin users.
As diabetes is an auto immune disease, don't fotget to consider Hypothyroidism. ...Read more

Have been feeling ill for sometime now with no reason why. Also have been feel just unmotivated to do anything. I need to know what could this be?

Get checkup with Dr: There are many possibilities. First, write down your symptoms, physical and emotional. Note when they began. Has there been a change in your sleep patterns or your diet? Are you under any stress (work, school, or family)? Are you getting any regular exercise? Sometimes talking with a trusted friend can help. If you are physically ill (fever, aches) you should see your doctor for a checkup. ...Read more
