You don’t need to be a brain surgeon to know that that exercise does your body some favours, but for many they are too busy and stressed to consider it a priority.
FITNESS / MINDFUL WELLBEING / NUTRITION
Virtually any form of exercise from yoga to a weekend hike can act as a stress reliever. You don’t need to be an athlete or not out of shape to benefit from stress management, and it doesn’t require expensive gym membership or a triad of online coaches.
A bit of motivation and basic fitness clothing is all you need to get started.
Exercise And Stress Relief
It is well documented that exercise increases your overall health and your sense of wellbeing, exercise also has some direct stress-busting benefits that are much needed in this current global pandemic.
Basic movement no matter how small increases the production of your brain's feel-good neurotransmitters, called endorphins. It reduces negative effects of stress.
Exercise can provide stress relief for your body by imitating effects of stress, such as the flight, fight or freeze response, helping your body and it’s systems to practice working together through those effects.
This can also lead to positive effects in your body—including your cardiovascular, digestive and immune systems by helping to protect your body from harmful effects of stress.
It's Meditation In Motion.
After a long walk or run, or several laps in the pool, you may often find that you've forgotten the day's irritations and concentrated only on your body's movements.
As you begin to regularly shed your daily tensions through movement and physical activity, you may find that this focus on a single task, and the resulting energy and optimism can help you stay calm, clear and focused in everything you do.
It Improves Your Mood And State
Regular exercise can increase self-confidence, improve your mood and state, help you relax, and lower symptoms of mild depression and anxiety. Exercise can also improve your sleep, which is often disrupted by stress, depression and anxiety. All of these exercise benefits can ease your stress levels and give you a sense of command over your body and your life.
