Give Stress a Rest

According to Jeffery Crupi, the owner of the Peak Fitness Gym in Westpoint, CT., when we physically exert ourselves, our bodies release endorphins, a "feel good" substance. When it comes to combating stress, every bit of exercise counts. Listed below are a few suggestions to incorporate into a routine exercise program and will help relieve stress.

Aerobic Activity
1. Walking - just 20 minutes of brisk walking can provide stress relief
2. Aerobic classes - Some people need the stimulation that an aerobic class has to offer: music, people, bright lights, etc.
3. Biking or running - take long bike rides or short jogs. Consider forming a bike club.

Household Chores
1. Gardening - Carrying bags of soil, planting, weeding, and watering plants can give you a moderate workout.
2. Lawn Mowing - Using a push lawn mower can give you a workout especially if you have a large yard.
3. Washing Cars - Skip the car wash and do it the old-fashioned hand and sponge method.

The stretching and strength exercise in yoga class can help relieve stress.
Just 20 minutes of exercise a day can greatly reduce your stress. If you have stress in your life, you can't be the best spouse, parent, worker, or friend. So, try to find a way to relieve the stress in your life with aerobics, house chores, or yoga. Your family and your health will be glad you did.
