Feeling anxious all the time? Then maybe rock climbing’s the answer. At least according to this article.
“Dr Sallee McLaren who’s both a rock climber and a clinical psychologist specialising in anxiety believes it can work for a number of reasons.
“I think it’s helpful with all anxiety problems because it enables people to enter into a deep level of concentration that helps push anxious thoughts away”
So next time you’re just barely hanging onto the rock, and you’re wondering how much farther you should climb before you can either clip or take that screamer, just remember how little anxiety you have right then.
