Physical Activity in almost any form can act as a stress reliever. Being active can boost your mood and distract from daily worries.

A little exercise will go a long way toward stress management for anyone! Take some time for yourself, get your heart rate up, and see how much better you feel after.

Walk it Off

One easy and simply way to reduce feelings of stress is going for a walk or run. This allows our bodies to feel good, and as a result, less worried. The faster and longer you go, the better you will feel.

What happens when you exercise?

Yoga to Relax

Yoga is another way to relieve stress. This is done with simple movements of the body and focusing on the breath to help relax and clear the mind.

Opportunities to Decrease Stress

Progressive muscle relaxation is another stress relieving tool. Try it now!

Tense up all of your muscles, including the ones in your face. Once your whole body is tense, begin relaxing one part at a time from your head down to your toes. Lastly take a deep breath and focus on breathing all of that 'tense' air out.

Any form of physical activity will help you ease stress. You may notice a "feel good” sensation immediately following your workout, and over time you will also see an improvement in your overall well-being as physical activity becomes a regular part of your life.

If you are feeling drained.. get up, get moving, and you'll definitely notice a difference!

Why not try adding a 15 minute walk to your daily routine?
