Health Tip: Fighting Stress

Distract yourself from worries

(HealthDay News) -- When you're super stressed, exercise is a great way to blow off steam, do a good deed for your body and distract yourself.

The Anxiety and Depression Association of America suggests:

  • Get exercise five days per week for 30 minutes each day. Focus on getting frequent workouts, even in short bursts, rather than waiting for a long period of free time. Enjoy walking, jogging or biking.
  • Decide what's most enjoyable, whether a group fitness class or a workout by yourself.
  • Download music, audiobooks or podcasts to listen to while you exercise. Ask a friend to exercise with you.
  • Give yourself time to adjust to a new exercise routine. It often takes four-to-eight weeks to adjust and feel fitter.
