Good News For Workaholics

Good News For Workaholics

Good news for workaholics.  According to the Mayo Clinic, virtually any form of exercise, from aerobics to weightlifting, can act as a stress reliever.  I’ve heard this for many years, but I’ve always wondered about the direct correlation.  That’s why I was extremely fortunate to have found the article Exercise and Stress found at http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/exercise-and-stress/SR00036.

According to the article, exercise:

  1. Physical activity helps to bump up the production of your brain’s feel-good neurotransmitters, called endorphins.
  2. Focusing on a single task, and the resulting energy and optimism, can help you remain calm and clear in everything that you do.
  3. Regular exercise can increase self-confidence and lower the symptoms associated with mild depression and anxiety.
