We all try and do our best when dealing with stress but just as stress itself is unavoidable, it can seem just as impossible to deal with stress in a positive manner. Angry? Have a smoke. Lonely? Eat. Mad at your significant other? Yell. Tired of the stress at work? Drink. These are all examples of bad habits anyone could use to try and curb daily life stressors. The negative reactions of both stress and these choices are not healthy for us, others around us and can become quite costly. These would be considered vices, to be more specific bad vices. They may calm you down for the moment or get you through the situation at hand, but was it the best route? Scientists, scholars, and studies show that EXERCISE IS A FANTASTIC STRESS RELIEVER. Not only is it a positive reaction to stress, but it’s very good for you, and can actually be fun.
Exercise for the love of life! Instead of having that extra cup of coffee to keep you awake, take a morning walk or walk the stairs a couple of times at work throughout the day. Do that for a couple weeks and watch your energy levels heighten and your sleep improving. Worried about your health? According to the CDC, exercise directly combats health conditions and diseases, from a cardiovascular disease to depression, exercise can truly be a life saver in every aspect.
Whether your trying to or not, exercise is going to make you look better, from the inside out and that is something hard to find and important to hold on to.
