Exercise for Mental Health

posted in: Depression | 0

Thanks to Psych Central for pointing out a British Journal of Sports Medicine study that shows as little as 20 minutes of physical activity can reduce the levels of anxiety and stress.

I know that I can tell by my stress level if it’s ben too long since I’ve been to the gym or gotten some other exercise. Spending some time working out is a great way to put a long stressful work day behind you, so this study really shows that I think many of us already know to some extent.

So, if you want a head start on dealing with anxiety and stress, go for a walk!
