EXERCISE Reduces Anxiety
by Charles Beeson
It’s been proven, over and over again, that exercise reduces anxiety, stress, and depression. If you’re suffering with anxiety, you probably wish you could take a pill and have it quickly go-away. For many individuals, exercise can be like instant medication. The relief may last for several hours… or much longer. Of course, as with all methods to alleviate anxiety, it may not be, as effective for you, as it is for someone else.
Any sustained movement of the body, as with exercise, causes the brain to release chemicals, called endorphins, that are mood altering. The mood produced is one of pleasure and happiness. Do whatever you are physically capable of doing. If you’ve been a couch potato, start out slow and gradually increase the intensity and duration of your workout, over time.
The type and duration of your exercise is not as critical, as you might think. Clinical studies have shown that a brisk, 10 minute walk, may be as effective in alleviating anxiety, as a 45 minute, high intensity, cardio workout!
These benefits can be realized by many simple activities, such as:
- Washing a car
- Taking a long walk
Walking up a long flight of stairs
Parking further away
