Exercising Away Anxiety: Stress Awareness Month Facts from Medicine in Motion
Date:4/18/2013

Austin Texas (PRWEB) April 18, 2013

At home, work, school and among family or friends, stress is all around. It's inescapable, but that doesn't mean it can't be manageable. One of the main goals of Stress Awareness Month is to present the public with successful coping strategies for stress and anxiety. While stress may take on different forms for different people, there are several ways to combat it. Everyone has a favorite method of dealing with the pressure of anxiety, but exercise is a sure-fire way for anyone to overcome stress. The Austin sports medicine doctors at Medicine in Motion have put together some facts on using exercise to reduce and eliminate feelings of stress:

1. Exercise burns up the excess energy caused by stress. The body reacts to stress as it would any dangerous situation - by building up energy in anticipation of reacting to the danger. Once the energy is depleted through exercise, stress levels are reduced.

2. Exercise metabolizes the stress hormones (such as cortisol) in blood, while simultaneously increasing endorphins, which are the chemicals that can make a person feel calm or even euphoric.

3. Although exercise burns energy, it often has the effect of making a person feel energetic over the long term. A person who has the energy to face their problems often feels less stressed by them.

4. Stress is often higher when a person's self-confidence is lower. Exercise can help boost a person's self-esteem by way of physical improvements, leading to a reduction in stress.

5. Simply stepping away from responsibilities and their related stresses for a few minutes of exercise may help limit the effects of stress. The psychological effects can be extremely beneficial when removing one's self from a negative situation and temporarily replacing it with a positive one like a fitness activity.

6. People who exercise have been found to generally handle stress better on a daily basis. So not only does exercise appear to reduce stress, but it seems to also act a stress-buffer for those who make fitness a regular part of their lives.
