SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- The economy is in turmoil. The stock market appears to dip lower ever day. Houses are being foreclosed upon and jobs are disappearing. Headlines scream out to us and we begin to panic. We wonder if the American Dream has become only a dream that cannot be turned into reality. We wait to hear remedies from our government leaders that never seem to be forthcoming. We are drowning in their silence and a sense of hopelessness sinks its teeth in our souls. We sit around immobilized by shock and fear.
As "The Body Mind Soul Solution: Healing Emotional Pain through Exercise" (Pegasus Books, Second Printing 2008) by Bob Livingstone shows, there is a means to overcoming this emotional paralysis, and it is by vigorously moving your body on a regular basis. Exercise has proven to be a stress reducer. Studies have also found that exercise can alleviate the symptoms of depression and anxiety. Exercise is a natural pressure reducer and can be used to manage the tension you carry around about the current worldwide economic crisis.
Exercise, such as walking as little as 15 minutes per day, can alter the brain chemistry enough where a sense of calmness is experienced. It can also be used as a healthy distraction from focusing on the economy. Concentrating on your workout can help you plan strategies for dealing with the financial crisis. Readers of "The Body Mind Soul Solution" find that hopelessness turns into hope and insurmountable problems now seem solvable.
According to author and psychotherapist Bob Livingstone, "Exercise can also heal emotional pain, and now may be an opportune time to explore this possibility." His new book, "The Body Mind Soul Solution: Healing Emotional Pain through Exercise" (Pegasus Books, Second Printing 2008), combines exercise, self-questioning, listening to music and journaling as a means to heal emotional pain.
The book has received rave reviews. According to the Miami Herald,
