I am really struggling to take my dog for a walk everyday. I can’t find the motivation to go out for a walk. It’s also kind of scary because it’s harder to distract myself from ruminating or combatting intrusive thoughts. How do you get motivated to walk your dog? Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

      I don't have a dog anymore but when I did it really helped me get past the executive dysfunction and paralysis to think about the benefits the dog will receive from it. It might suck for me but my dog will be happy. On really bad days though I would put a puppy pad near the door amd change it out whenever could.

      I'm going to start taking my chonk of a dog for walks here soon. She needs to lose weight and I need the fresh air.
