How do you spell relief? E X E R C I S E.
According to the Mayo Clinic website, and they should know, exercise in almost any form can act as a stress reliever. Activity boosts your feel-good endorphins and distracts you from daily worries.
We know that exercise is good for us, but it also has some direct stress busting benefits. We are here to tell you what they are.
Exercise provides stress relief for your body while imitating effects of stress, such as the flight or fight response, and helping your body and its systems practice working through them. This can also lead to positive effects in your body—including your cardiovascular, digestive and immune systems—by helping protect your body from harmful effects of stress.
Once you begin to de-stress through working out, you'll find that focusing on exercise, and the resulting energy and optimism, can help you stay calm, clear and focused in everything you do.
Keep working out! Exercise can increase self-confidence, improve your mood, help you relax, and help depression and anxiety. Exercise can also improve your sleep, which is trashed by stress, depression and anxiety.
Almost any form of exercise or movement can increase your fitness level while decreasing your stress. The most important thing is to pick what you love. We love you to get your workout at The Gym!
