This one hurts so good. It’s all about that physical activity. Doing. Moving. To be clear, we’re not talking about setting some crazy ambitious workout plan that’ll cause more stress when you can’t keep up with it. We’re talking about adding a bit of motion into your life. A walk, a run, a quick pull-up on a lamp post as you walk by (maybe not that). Physical activity reduces stress. And finding an easy, non-committal way to add it into your life, will make you feel (and look) pretty amazing.
Research demonstrates that being active in nature adds another positive effect on stress.
Being physically active can improve the way the body handles stress because of changes in the hormone responses. Exercising affects neurotransmitters in the brain such as dopamine and serotonin that affect mood and behaviors.
Where should you start?A walk outside. It’s easy, it’s refreshing and it’s mindful. Just do us one favor, avoid the treadmill. If it’s cold, breathe in that cool fresh air. If it’s beautiful, enjoy the sounds, the breeze, and the daylight. We’re not asking you to commit to walking everyday. Just do it today and see how you feel tomorrow.
