Can workouts relieve stress?
Get moving to manage stress! By being active and exercising you boost your feel-good endorphins in your body and it distracts you from any daily worries you may have.
Here is why exercise helps relieve stress:
It pumps endorphins in your body:
Physical activity helps the production of feel good neurotransmitters known as endorphins. Endorphins trigger a positive feeling in the body and a sense of euphoria.
Exercise is a form of meditation, in motion:
Working out sheds away any daily tensions you may carry with you and this is through movement. You find your mind focusing on the exercise with all the positive energy and optimism you have. This allows you to stay calm, clear and focused in everything you choose to do.
Exercise is a mood booster:
By exercising consistently you will improve all aspects of your wellbeing from self confidence, improve your mood, help you to relax, and lower symptoms of anxiety or depression.
Exercise helps to improve your sleep:
Exercise and sleep goes hand in hand in affecting stress. By exercising you can improve your sleep. An adequate amount of sleep and quality will allow you to tackle the day’s stresses much more easily as quality sleep calms and restores the body, improves concentration, regulates mood, and sharpens judgment and decision- making.
