Why Do A Workout For Stress Relief?
It’s so important to keep up our immune system and mood by breaking into a good sweat!
Working out pumps up the brain’s production of feel-good neurotransmitters called endorphins. Any aerobic activity, from HIIT to hiking, can produce this effect.
According to the Mayo Clinic, exercise mitigates the impacts of the body’s ‘fight or flight’ response, which rears its head when we’re under stress. Too much of this fight or flight response can have harmful impacts for the body.
Plus, fun music will also increase your endorphins which lowers your stress hormones and increases blood flow to the body for good health and healing.
HIIT is so beneficial in strengthening the heart and lungs and inducing a faster metabolism that can last for hours after you workout, which is great for fat control.
