Did you know that reports of anxiety are up 25% over the past couple of years?
I personally think this number is quite low since anxiety shows up in different ways for different people … and it’s not always easy to recognise it as anxiety.
A few ways it can show up: feeling restless or agitated, having headaches and/or unexplained pains, trouble focusing, feeling tired, disrupted sleep, worrying, or rolling the same-old, same-old thoughts over and over in your head.
One of the best natural ways to get almost immediate relief from anxiety is to EXERCISE – especially workouts that get your heart rate up!
It works in a few different ways to help you feel better, and studies show it rivals some prescription meds.
Here are a few ways exercise helps battle anxiety:
• It can help take your mind off whatever is making you feel anxious
• The very act of moving stops your muscles from being so tense
• Getting your heart rate up boosts anti-anxiety brain chemicals
• Plus, it activates the part of your brain that helps control the amygdala (your amygdala can trigger feelings of fear & anxiety)
• PLUS … exercising regularly can help you become less vulnerable to strong emotions
The more regular you are with your workouts, the better your anxiety-killing results.
For the best results, find activities that get your heart rate up AND that you like doing – and keep doing them.
And … if you are experiencing serious anxiety, make sure you tell your doctor.
Just another reason to move your body and get in that workout!
