Exercise Reduces Stress

Exercise is one of the factors that reduces stress. When people feel stressed, especially about school, they try to exercise by doing sports or activities. Some activities that are a good exercise are jogging, biking, or stretching. Sports such as soccer, tennis, basketball, and others are very good workouts. Such sports and activities guarantee that if people practice them, they will feel less stressed and will be in a good mood. People who exercise report that they feel better afterwards and their mood improve dramatically.

One of the reasons exercise helps people feel less stress in their lives is because of the positive impact exercise has on their bodies. Exercise makes people forget their daily worries and helps their brain function better. “You know that exercise does your body good, but you're too busy and stressed to fit it into your routine” (Mayo Clinic). People are too stressed sometimes to think that exercise will help them. They are too worried about their every-day lives to think about ways to reduce the stress they have every day. When they really start doing physical exercise, they realize it helps them and they change their mind and find out that they were wrong.

Another positive and helpful factor of working out is how relieved and relaxed people feel after working out. People can experience one of the best feelings or relief when they exercise and depending on what effort they put into it. “Physical activity helps to bump up the production of your brain's feel-good neurotransmitters, called endorphins.” (Mayo Clinic). This is considered a high tension feeling that is experienced by playing sports. This feeling can be achieved by playing a tennis game or going on a hike in the mountains.
