Exercise To Help Beat Stress


Feeling stressed? Get moving and sweat the stress out!

There are many studies that support the idea that exercise has a powerful impact on mood. A recent article in the journal Nature Medicine reported that cardiovascular activity stimulates a specific area in the brain that controls mood and stress.

And people who suffer from panic attacks who took a 30-minute walk when they felt on the verge of a meltdown were twice as likely to dodge an anxiety episode as those who rested quietly.

Researchers at the University of Georgia at Athens have also found that the more workouts people managed to fit in each week, the more energetic they felt.

How much exercise and sweat does it take to de-stress your mind? For each person, it most likely will vary, but a study at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas suggests that walking as little as 2 miles a day, every day, can help relieve your stress and improve your mood.

So the next time you are feeling stressed out, get up, get out, and move your body.

Sweat away your stress, and improve your mind and health!
