Last month I tweaked my back and couldn’t lift for a few weeks. I totally understand when you say it fucks up your mental health

You need to recover. I was an idiot and tried lifting anyway and it just made my recovery time longer. You need to let your body heal so you can come back stronger. Also bro it’s just your fucking collarbone. Easiest bone to break in your body. Unless you need surgery to get it fixed you’ll be back soon enough.

Lastly don’t just lie around in bed depressed either. Go for some walks. Keep going to the gym and just do the treadmill so you stay in the habit. Meditate and stay busy.

I’m currently recovering from a broken leg.

You have to focus on the things you CAN do. Don’t get bogged down with what you can’t.

Also don’t fall into the mindset of feeling like you’re wasting time doing nothing. You’re not doing nothing, you’re HEALING, which is very important.

Allow yourself to heal, but when it’s go time (when instructed by your doctor / physio), make sure you push yourself, after the initial healing period, using the muscle / joints is very beneficial for healing and restoring normal function. This is what I know from my injury but I’m sure it applies regardless.

Leverage your time you would otherwise be spending at the gym / exercising whatever. Read more books, cook good food, use it for education.

You’ll be back in no time. 💪🏼

Take the time to recover, get your nutrition right, and focus on the things you can do. Like the others have said, keep going to the gym for other things. Don't go too hard maybe just machines and light cardio. Speedy recovery to you dude

Did the collarbone thing back in high-school. I'm 62 now and it still hurts when I crank it hard :(

Take this time to heal, read, control your diet and loose weight if you want to. Walking might help.

The collarbone is so integral to upper body movement - give it a good 3 months to heal up and even then take it easy on the heavy stuff for the next while

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
