“High rates of sex are extremely healthy. Sex improves people’s hearts and slims their waistlines. When couples are trying to conceive, they have to have lots of sex. Lots of women even use masturbation to help them sleep every night. Sometimes ‘too much’ sex is just what the doctor ordered.”

Now remember their is a big difference between sex addition and porn addiction. The vast majority of true sex addicts have many people they sleep with. In addition to having a spouse or other long-term partner, a sex addict may seek out sex with several anonymous strangers over the course of a week, month or year. Porn addicts, on the other hand, are often single. If they have partners, they often turn them down in favor of porn.

Addiction to workout programs like Crossfit and more

exercise addiction

Is this exercise addiction?

Ever had a buddy say, “I am addicted to working out?”.  Most likely you haven’t but there are hundreds of thousands people that cope with life’s stresses by taking it out on a healthier option.  Instead of screaming at their spouse or kids they decide it’s time to “go for a run”.

When they get a phone call about having to work the weekend they decide to go hit the Box for another Crossfit workout to let go of some steam. But when does it cross the line?

Usually it’s when a person exercises over 90 minutes per day, 7 days a week, and it starts taking over their life. You can also be on the lookout for some of these signs:

  • If a person exercises in spite of injury, weather, or other factors.
  • If they get irritable or depressed when they can’t exercise.
  • If they turn down social events with family or friends in order to get in a workout.
  • If they take multiple fitness classes and then workout again at home.
  • If the person keeps wanting “more”- always keeps training harder, running more miles, or spending more time in the gym. This symptom is especially telling, since the more exercise is practiced the longer it takes to achieve a “high” or sense of well-being after the activity.

So…. now you’ve figured out that you are one of these people that doesn’t know when to say when.  What do you do now?

  • Try stopping for a few days. This can be challenging at first, but if you avoid the gym for at least a week it will allow your body some time to rest. You realize that working out more than 6 days a week is bad for you right? Try doing some other fun things like reading, going for slow walks outdoors, and spending time with friends.
  • Work exercise slowly back into your to your routine. Set a limit for how much time you’re going to work out, or how many miles you’ll run, and stick to it. Better yet, exercise with a friend who might not be in as good a shape as you. She’ll let you know when she needs to stop!
  • Work in tandem with a personal trainer. They’ll help you set limits on how much exercise your body really needs.
