Exercise and Stress

Self love is taking care of your body, inside and out. We all get stressed from time to time, but by addressing stress early you can keep it from leading to burnout and long-term effects on your health. Exercise can play a key role in stress reduction. When you exercise it releases endorphins, which are chemicals in the body that can act as natural painkillers.

Regular physical activity can relieve much of the tension and anxiety that contributes to stress. Even just 30 minutes a day can make a huge impact. But in addition to the physical benefits, exercise can also elevate your mood, ease emotional fluctuations, and improve focus. So, take some time each day to prioritize exercise and be active – your body and mind will thank you!
