Benefits of Exercise - Reduce Stress With Exercise

By: Alien

With the way everyday life can be at times, it seems we all get stressed out during much of our day. Of course, we also know how damaging stress can be on our bodies. Perhaps it's time to eliminate that stress with some exercise.

I know, the term exercise may not be what you want to hear right now, but it doesn't mean you need to sweat like you're in a sauna or feel like you've been through boot camp either. It can be as simple as going for a walk to reduce stress.

I don't think I need to tell you what too much stress will do to your body and your health over time, it's been well documented and well known for many years. To reduce the stress in your life, it's going to require you to do something different. That something different is exercise. Every doctor and medical professional recommends getting some daily exercise.

Do you enjoy going for walks? Great, begin a walking for exercise program. Walking is one of the best, if not the best, exercise and fitness routines that you can do for your health. Grab a good pair of tennis shoes and a headset and get on your feet. You'll be amazed at how the stress of the day simply falls away.

Do you enjoy aerobic exercise? Join an aerobics class and have some fun. You can find aerobic classes everywhere.

Perhaps you enjoy tennis, swimming, golf, basketball or racquetball. All of these activities along with so many others are not only good for your health, but they are great in removing stress from your body.

Even if you simply don't want to leave home and go exercise and you just want to watch TV, you can still exercise and reduce stress. You can purchase a treadmill and start walking while watching TV, or if funds are tight, buy a jogging board. A padded jogging board is inexpensive and allows you to exercise right in front of the TV.

My best suggestion is still walking. It is the most simple and beneficial exercise on the planet at removing stress and keeping healthy.

When you exercise, become fitter then you also release other hormones and chemicals throughout the body. These chemicals are the anti-stress chemicals. They help to balance and neutralize the chemicals produced when stresses occur. Basically exercise is good for you.

Research has shown the many benefits of exercise, from improving your heart and circulation, better digestion, increases immunity, but best of all a better stress coping ability.

No matter what kind of activity you like to do, the most important thing is to get up and do it. Eliminate the stress in your life with a few minutes of exercise. You'll be much happier and healthy for it.
