Run Away Your Stress

EE8A129965

Running is not only a great exercise, but research has shown that it also helps reduce stress and anxiety. Engaging in physical activity inhibits mechanisms within the hippocampus of the brain. This allows the brain to block stress signals when under a lot of pressure.

By reducing stress, you will be able to decrease:

  • Anxiety
  • Panic attacks
  • Irritability
  • Moodiness
  • Headaches
  • Problems sleeping
  • Depression
  • Chest pain
  • Allergic reactions
  • Stomach problems
  • Overeating
  • Cravings
  • Weight changes

So next time you are stressed out, put on your running shoes!
