Since a very young age I have used physical exercise to help manage my physical and mental wellbeing. Throughout the years whenever I have felt low moods or overwhelmed with life I have always used boxing and exercise as my medicine and a strategy for positive self-help. This strategy totally saved me when life threw some real unexpected challenges.
At these points I felt so confused but the one thing I knew I had to do for myself was to get down the gym hit the bag and clear my mind. It was almost as if I went into fight mode, I put my defence up and got stuck in. I started training more than ever before and knew it was the key for me to move forward and fight through the challenges and be mentally prepared for the ones that were to come.
