10 Badass Motivational Images for Fighting Depression with Exercise

badass motivation for fighting depression

For exercise motivation, perseverance and grit carry much more power than motivational images or speeches. Motivation that creates lasting change comes from a desire to better yourself for yourself and only works when combined with determination and habit.

But sometimes, all you really need is some immediate motivation that triggers something within you and gets your adrenaline surging.

Exercise is essential for depression treatment, but can be incredibly hard to do with the lack of energy and motivation that depression causes. For those of us with depression (or any mental disorder), tapping into that very struggle as a motivating force can be very powerful.

Your mental fatigue, depression, and apathy is your enemy and exercise is your fight for yourself. Here are ten of my favorite motivational images that get me in the fighting spirit.

Plus, some of them have ME in them!
