Healthy lifestyle behaviors such as adequate sleep, nutrition, and exercise are essential for mental and physical health, but OCD sufferers often have difficulty engaging in these behaviors. This presentation will utilize recent literature and case examples to review the evidence for the importance of sleep, nutrition, and exercise in OCD and anxiety treatment, explore evidence-based therapeutic strategies for increasing engagement in healthy lifestyle behaviors in these domains, and discuss how to effectively integrate these strategies into CBT-ERP treatment.
