After being diagnosed with bipolar disorder, I was forced to re-evaluate my overall health. If you read my other content, then you know how I blame my excessive lifestyle as a contributing factor for my bipolar. In my teens, I did drugs and drank almost every week.
Even though it’s stated how drugs and alcohol can’t cause bipolar disorder, both are known to worsen the symptoms. Harsher symptoms will impact your life more by attracting negative energy your way. I know this because, over the years, I’ve stopped using drugs, limited my alcohol, and workout 3-4 times per week. This has helped me stay positive and get a grip on my bipolar symptoms. The power of a healthy lifestyle should never be underestimated and doctors tell you to start exercising as your first line of defense against manic and depressive episodes.
