Feeling stressed? Most people are these days.
The past couple of months have been filled with new levels of stress as we’ve all dealt with the coronavirus pandemic.
But you don’t have to let stress get the best of you.
When stress is getting you down, you need something that makes you feel good and is good for you.
I’m talking about exercise!
Every time you exercise you increase your body’s production of endorphins.
In case you have forgotten, endorphins are responsible for those good moods you get into after a race and the pleasure you feel while chomping down on a piece of chocolate.
However, before you grab a piece of chocolate and skip your workout, remember the end result of each and choose which one will help you battle stress in the long run.
(Hint: It’s not the chocolate.)
Any and all exercise you do helps you fend off the effects of stress, in addition to all the other benefits of exercise: including but not limited to burning fat, increasing energy, reducing joint pain, regaining a youthful appearance…the list goes on.
