NATURAL ANXIETY RELIEF

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. (Pretty awesome!)

Here are a few ways exercise helps battle anxiety:

  • It can get your mind off of 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, be sure to tell your doctor. 

Just another reason to move your body and get in that workout! 

Make it an amazing day,
