Exercise and Stress


Have you ever noticed how your body feels when you’re under stress? Your muscles may be tense, especially in your neck and face. You may also feel a tightness in your chest. You might also have problems like insomnia and heartburn. The worry and discomfort of all these physical symptoms can in turn lead to even more stress.

Exercising is an effective way to break this cycle. Physical activity helps to relax the muscles and relieve tension in the body. The body and mind are closely linked. When your body feels better, so will your mind.

Exercise and Anxiety

Exercise is also a natural and effective anti-anxiety treatment. It relieves tension and stress, boosts physical and mental energy, and enhances well-being through the release of endorphins. Anything that gets you moving can help, but you’ll get a bigger benefit if you pay attention, instead of zoning out.

Exercise and Depression


Exercise can treat mild to moderate depression as effectively as an antidepressant.
Exercise is a powerful depression fighter. It promotes all kinds of changes in the brain. It releases endorphins (powerful chemicals in your brain that energize your spirit and makes you feel really good). It can also serve as a distraction, allowing you to find some quiet time to break out of the cycle of negative thoughts that feed depression.
