20 Things Stress Reduction Exercise
Can Do For You

Mental alertness is increased
due to biochemical changes made in the body when exercising.
So you will actually feel better about everything that you do.
It will also increase the oxygen level of your blood, and help you to think
more positive thoughts about what you're doing.

   Get an increased sense of self motivation and self-control
when you get into the habit of exercising on a regular basis.
It's something that your body wants and needs, and your new
personal motivations may inspire you to do many other health conscious
things once you begin.

Exercise tones muscles & helps you to feel relaxed.
Exercise reduces feelings of stress, anxiety and depression.
Reducing stress via exercise will then allow all the muscles in body to relax.
Face muscles, scalp muscles, eye muscles and ear muscles that have been
just as tense due to stress will also have the opportunity to really relax.

  People who exercise regularly were more than twice as likely to quit bad habits
than those who did not.  So starting and sticking to a new exercise program could
help you to lose weight, stop smoking, as well as reduce your intake of self
medications such as alcohol, nicotine, muscle relaxants and sleeping pills.

Exercise is natures prescription
for working off the self imposed stress that usually accompanies change.
The act of making an exercise program part of your daily schedule
is a very health conscious way to affirm your commitment
in making any positive changes in your life.

Exercise also decreases the feeling of anxiety and depression
that is often associated with being forced to change something you really
don't want to change.  Don't let exercise become a negative influence
because you can't see any immediate results.  Use it to make yourself
healthier now... and you'll find yourself much happier later on.

 People who learn to make exercise part of their life often
gain a new sense of accomplishment and control
that allows them to feel more emotionally stable and creative.
Feeling good about improving yourself is one of the most health conscious things
you can do for your body and your mind.

Exercise promotes better sleep, better health & improved work performance.
You'll be surprised how much physical and mental energy you can gain from
exercising on a regular basis.  Try it.  And to help double the immediate
gratifications of each exercise activity, make some written notes
about how you really feel just before and just after exercising...
and you'll see what I mean.

Exercise decreases the desire to eat
and contributes in helping you to lose weight.  Do not use the bathroom scale
as a tool to measure your progress as fat weighs less than muscle... check out
our diet page for more information.

Regular exercise has shown to create a degree of
protection against all health risks and thereby improve overall health.
One thing it does is run the pump that controls the lymph glands.
Movement is the key to good health because it is the pump that clears the
body of dead and weak cells. The lymph glands don't have a pump like the
heart and lungs.  Movement is the only thing that makes them work.

Smokers who quit smoking and begin exercising regularly
will receive 3 times the benefits of exercise
than those that exercise but continue to smoke.  High blood pressure and
smoking is a dangerous combination.  Why not stop smoking and get a new
lease on life with a health conscious exercise program.
Exercise is an important part of all professionally run smoking programs.

Even deep breathing exercises or a full body massage
(someone working the muscles for you)
will help to make you a healthier person.

 Sustained exercises such as walking, running, jogging and aerobic exercise
are some of the best types of personal exercises that can
improve your health immediately...
and all of which can be done at a minimal expense.

Starting a personal exercise program can produce very positive
personality changes that can boost self-esteem and change your life
in many positive ways.   Feeling good about yourself and
what you are doing to improve your health will also help you to find
some new health conscious friends.  The combination of all these positive
things can help you to take control of your life.

Many people have learned to
use exercise instead of cigarettes or alcohol to control stress.
Instead of just using alcohol and nicotine to "cover up" those original stressful
feelings, (while adding more stress to your excuses to keep smoking)
exercise will really help you to remove the stressful feelings from your life.

Beginning any exercise program before quitting any bad habit or addiction
can also help you to keep your weight under control during and after
making the lifestyle changes.

If you exercise with a support group or friend, you may reap additional
benefits from your exercise plan.  Local jogging and walking  groups are a
great place to find an exercise friend.

Outdoor exercise will promote the opportunity to relax and enjoy nature
at the same time.  Both will help to reduce stress and lower blood pressure.

Starting an exercise program is
the single most helpful thing a health concerned person can do.

Exercise will immediately help you to create a healthier lifestyle.
Good health can be contagious.

Once others see you getting the benefits of exercise...
they'll want to know more... pass it on.

Psychological stress reliever
reducing stress with exercise

Many people find themselves stressed out over the pressures of everyday life.
Exercise can help reduce stress without medication

According to a Kansas State University study, people who exercise on a regular
basis recover from psychological stress much faster and easier.

Exercising is the best way to deal with all kinds of stressful feelings...
Learning how to use exercise as a stress response system,
gives the body an instant way to recover.

The study reported the reason exercise helps us cope with stress
may have to do with hormonal changes in our bodies.


Smokers, and those in extremely poor shape, those over 35 who have medical problems
or have not exercised in many years should consult with a physician
before starting an aggressive exercise program.
