Diet and fitness are tools that will assist in climbing out from the swamp of depression, to eventually stand on solid ground.
Building confidence by participating in a physical activity, has proven to assist in this development.
So why rock climbing, how can it help?
Rock Climbing is viewed as an exciting yet challenging physical sport.
This form of physical activity concentrates on the development of grit and determination.
Pushing through that mental block of "I can't do that" invites a growth mindset.
Often depression causes individuals to feel isolated. It's a challenge to find practical activities that support those with anxiety to engage and build friendships.
Thankfully you don't have to go hiking hours through the bush, trying to find a wall to climb, to benefit from this activity.
