How to manage your stress

Manage Your Stress with Exercise

Exercising is not only a way to manage your health and weight, but your mental and emotional health too.

Life coach and Adventure Boot Camp franchise owner, Chirene Wiid says that working out will help you manage your stress and release unwanted toxins from your body, which keeps your emotions down. “Build your self-esteem, manage depression and anxiety, and be a more pleasant you just by adding exercise into your routine,” advises Chirene.

4 ways to keep your stress in check:

1. Boost your endorphins

Go for a run, hit the gym and play outside with your family. Exercise will rewire your brain and set your happy hormones on fire. Physical activity helps to stimulate the production of your brain’s feel-good hormones.

2. It’s all in the motion

Shed your daily stress through movement and physical activity. Focusing on a single, energetic task will help you remain calm and clear in everything you do.

3. Improve your mood

Regular exercise can increase self-confidence and lower the symptoms associated with mild depression and anxiety. It will also improve your sleep. All of this can ease your stress levels and give you a sense of command over your body and your life.

4. Group work

The benefits of exercising in a group far outweigh those of training solo, especially if working out is new to your routine. Exercising in a group keeps you motivated.
