Exercise and Stress
Trying to find the time to exercise may be one of the most difficult things to do for many of us because it is often easier to sit back and rest than to go out and jog, ride a bike or hit the gym. But in these stressful times it may be more important than ever to get out there and get the heart rate up and build up a sweat. There are studies that show that exercise helps us deal with stress, but all you have to do is think about how much energy you gain from a workout to realize this. In addition, if the exercise is made part of a sport or competitive game it can help you forget worries and concerns for a while. I know that I am always recommending exercise for the long term benefits...and yes there are many long term benefits. But, the simple fact is that exercise can help you every day and there are immediate effects. Just check out www.mymedicalreports.com for the latest on exercise benefits.
