We all know it’s important to manage our weight and our stress levels but did you know that they could be related? Practically any type of exercise, whether it be a stroll around the park or an intense boot camp class, helps to relieve stress. Read on to find out just how staying active can help relieve stress!
Get an Endorphin Boost:
Usually called a runner’s high, any type of physical activity can help boost your brain’s feel-good neurotransmitters called endorphins. Shaping your body and boosting your mood at the same time? Sounds like a win-win!
Get into a Rhythm:
Some exercises like running, jogging or even weight training get you into a natural rhythm during a workout by performing a repeat motion. That flow of a repeat action helps to relax and clear your mind.
Some stress comes from being unorganized and getting into a workout pattern can help organize your daily schedule.
Get Better Sleep:
Studies have shown that the more you workout, the better rest you get and having a more restful night’s sleep helps decrease stress!
How do you help reduce your stress levels?
