# 3. Defeat my anxiety disorder
In 2019 I was diagnosed with a pretty bad anxiety disorder. I have been fighting it now for several months and have come a long way since mid 2019. But there is still much to be done. I don't know what the next steps will be, but I will keep on fighting.
@johannesg that was 2017 for me and it gets better. Best things I did: cbt based therapy and I got an ebike and rode it everywhere often. Its winter here now and I am feeling the anxiety creep back in. Placing an order for studded tires so I can get back on the saddle.
@johannesg but any exercise that is easy to incorporate into everyday is best. If Biking isn’t possible than I recommend seeking out a trainer or group exercise or finding something to do with a partner.
@peregrine group or a trainer is not possible for me as I live extremely isolated. No people around.
You are right though. Exercise helps and I did a tiny bit in 2019. Hoping to increase it for 2020.
@johannesg fun exercise is key. I never do it unless i am also having fun or if social pressure forces it.
