Beat stress by staying in shape during busy season

We all know that one of the best ways to relieve stress and tension is with exercise. The Anxiety Disorders Association of America states that exercise is considered vital for maintaining mental fitness, and it can reduce stress. ADAA reports that scientists have found that regular participation in aerobic exercise has been shown to decrease overall levels of tension, elevate and stabilize mood, improve sleep, and improve self-esteem. Even five minutes of aerobic exercise can stimulate anti-anxiety effects.
