Everyone experiences anxiety from time to time. For some, it’s a minor inconvenience, like the tightening of the chest before an exam or date; for others, the source can be more dramatic and debilitating, lasting weeks, months, or even years.

Agein.com, the Internet’s premier anti-aging web site focusing on anti-aging tips, news, and advice from some of the foremost experts in the industry, is releasing its expert opinion on a recent study out of Princeton University that shows how exercise can calm anxiety. This can lead to better mental health and general physical and mental well-being.
“Everyone experiences anxiety from time to time. For some, it’s a minor inconvenience, like the tightening of the chest before an exam or date; for others, the source can be more dramatic and debilitating, lasting weeks, months, or even years,” says Laura Foreman, Agein.com’s Anti-Aging Life Coach. “New research now definitively shows that exercise can help manage overall stress levels.”
Researchers at Princeton University recently discovered that exercise reorganizes the brain so that its response to stress is reduced and anxiety is less likely to interfere with normal brain function. Until recently, scientists did not know why exercise, which prompts the creation of new excitable brain cells, can, at the same time, induce an overall pattern of calm.

“This groundbreaking research shows that our brains can be very adaptive. In fact, even though exercise creates vibrant new brain cells, our brains know to shut them down when they shouldn’t be in action. This new research is extremely important in helping us understand how the brain regulates anxious behavior and how exercise can calm anxiety,” Foreman adds. “It’s also important to note that the study looked at long-term training responses. The subjects were monitored 24 hours after running, when they could not benefit from the short-term calming effect from exercise.”
“This proves that the brain of the subject that exercised is remodeled to better deal with stress than sedentary ones are,” Foreman concludes. “While the study looked at mice, and not people, the experts at Agein.com don’t think it’s a big stretch to suggest that people who exercise are less susceptible to stress and lead a healthier, happier life than inactive people do.”
