My theropist told me lifting weights was the best way to handle anxiety. Just don't over do it. I also think walking at a fast pace has helped. It took me about 2 weeks before I really started to noticed a difference. My anxiety start to calm down and the feel is now not there at all when I work out and walk for about 2 miles. It doesn't totally fix the problem but it does help. It also helps me sleep.

Its a pretty common concern people have over exercise, thankfully its not one that I have had but your not alone at all! Exercise is proven to help reduce anxiety overtime, it doesnt always work for me but sometimes it does. It definitely helps to reduce it though.

Very common with anxiety and there is only one way to do it and that is to do it .
Your not scared of the exercise but only of your heart rate . Heart rates are meant to rise when you exercise so if you do it and get use to it as normal you will not be worried by it any more
