I wanna exercise but it's hard getting motivation to do it with depression. I heard exercising helps with pots..

      there’s a girl on tiktok that shows workouts you can do from your bed if you can’t find the energy or strength to get out. i also really love just doing yoga in my room. i can make it as difficult or slow and easy as i want it to be or watch a video or make up my own transitions. it feels really good to just stretch and move without putting too much stress on my body

      I'm in PT for POTS to build up a routine but it got put on temporary hold bc my iron level is almost zero, so they are waiting til I get iron infusions bc can't exercise with no iron (my FE level has been 4, my iron 6, 3% sat - super anemic just took them 7 months to decide to act on it bc I have HH too).

      I second the elastic band that's what my physical therapist is having me use. I also go on nature walks (if you can) it's nice to get fresh air and get a little cardio but I literally walk around my house so I can lay in the grass in case of dizziness

      I like just lifting weights while sitting at home, it’s hard to get up the motivation to go somewhere and pots makes that hard anyway, so it’s a good compromise that still helps!!!

        @Belugabear Thank you! I wanna work on my legs though to help with the blood pool you know?

          @JennaR yeah I get that, maybe try an elastic band? I do a lot of exercises with those for my legs and they are mostly while lying down!!
