Help

I have been felling very down. I Know that I can do many things to make myself feel better, but they cost money and time. What should I do. I am not rich, but If I go back to school and work out, I will feel so much better about myself, but being broke will be even worse. What should I do? Does anyone know?

Re: Help

Hi, and sorry to hear your feeling down. Is it possible for you to go to school part time in the evening while you work? The majority of people do this today because "we are broke and have no choice". It may take a little longer to get the degree you are working towards but if it'll make your life happier by being able to work so you can "buy" the things you want it'll be worth it. This way you can also work-out before class or go to the gym on the nights you don't have classes. Something for you to think about.

Re: Help

Chris--I agree, part time school sounds like a good option... but why don't you just go outside and run a few miles... get yourself moving. That will start you up--once you're feeling a little better you'll feel more motivated to get the school/work thing going! Keep us posted... hope it works.
I'm serious about the running too, I love it, it makes me feel twice as good all day long. **

Re: Help

Chris--
Hope is right....
you do not need to go to the gym in order to work out and keep fit.
Most of what I do, is without the use of equipment. There is always walking, running, things that you can do without a price attached to it.
I find that when I do a lot of exercise, I am less depressed and feel a lot better about myself.
I dont know if this will help for you, but it does for me. It is worth a try.

About school...there are many options that students have. Go and see your student advisor and see what choices you have. If you explain your situation, most advisors will create an opportunity for you to "work, rest and play".
Good luck.
