Lean On Life, a leading healthy lifestyle website with the latest on weight loss, nutrition and fitness is recommending that those suffering from stress begin to exercise regularly (view article here).
Based on research by the Harvard Medical School, regular exercise doesn’t just positively affect health and fitness; rather, research shows that exercise can also help mental health and assist when dealing with stress.
Lean On Life is recommending that those suffering from stress (and even those who are simply looking to improve their quality of life) begin exercising regularly. The website offers ten different suggestions for exercises that can help in reducing stress levels.
For instance, Lean On Life recommends trying Yoga or Tai Chi for those who are looking for low-impact sports that still help individuals get into shape and focus on improving their stress-dealing methods.
The site offers solutions for individuals who are short on time or space and are still seeking to exercise regularly. For instance, Tabata is a Japanese exercise method based on high intensity training mixed with periods of rest. Tabata involves 20 second bursts of intense cardio with 10 seconds of rest, which is ideal for those who don’t have much time to spare.
Another great option for those short on time or space is the concept of “exergame”, or using a video game console to work out. There are many video games that employ motion sensors so that the players use their bodies to control the game. This technology allows users to stay at home and exercise to improve their stress levels.
The site advocates that no matter what form of exercise you use, the key is to keep it up regularly. By having an outlet to get in shape and to let energy out, those with busy lifestyles will be much more likely to reduce their stress levels.
Lean On Life is a healthy lifestyle website that provides expert-driven knowledge from doctors, nutritionists, fitness trainers and life coaches. The site takes a hands-on approach to making weight-loss, healthy eating and fitness a simple achievable lifestyle change.
