Get Moving When Worried Or Stressed

Get Moving when Worried or​ Stressed.
When we face depressive situations our minds and​ thoughts are usually clouded with worry,​ fear,​ anxiety and​ sadness. ​
Needless to​ say,​ diverting our minds from these emotional statesat least temporarily may help with dealing with them. ​

Friends,​ one surefire way to​ accomplish this is​ through exercise.
Aw,​ boy…? is​ he saying I ​ have to​ go to​ the​ gym or​ jump down and​ do a​ bunch of​ pushups,​ I ​ don’t feel like it​ and​ besides I’m not in​ shape...
If that was your initial response,​ don’t worry,​ it’s not about muscle building or​ ‘body punishment’. ​
Simple to​ moderate exercises can and​ will do just fine.
However,​ I ​ must stress friends that exercisingeven 1015 minutes or​ lessis quite helpful for handling stress as​ this engages the​ motor centers of​ the​ brain,​ making the​ blood flow away from the​ emotional activity center; consequently one becomes more receptive to​ positive thoughts. ​

Now,​ based on​ my personal experiences with dealing with my problems and​ admittedly,​ on​ some bad days in​ spite of​ how much I ​ believe in​ positive thinking and​ all…,​ I’ve found the​ following exercises to​ be very,​ very effective as​ ‘pickmeuppers’ for the​ day.
You will observe that they are Yogic in​ nature,​ however,​ as​ true as​ that is,​ I ​ tend to​ think they are versatile enough for anybody to​ do. ​
as​ long as​ you​ keep in​ mind that the​ goal here isn’t building muscle,​ just something to​ get our minds off stressful situations
Here are the​ exercises
1. ​
The Sun Salutations
The sun exercises stimulates and​ balances all systems of​ the​ body including the​ endocrine and​ nervous systems that have marked effects on​ our emotions,​ furthermore they induce deep breathing,​ which has been known over the​ ages to​ help alleviate many a​ stressful situation. ​
Performed in​ rounds of​ 3,​ they actually are a​ combination of​ very simple movements executed in​ a​ flowing motion. ​

2. ​
Hindu PushUps
These actually are best described as​ DownwardandUpward FacingdogmeetsCalisthenics. ​
Nonetheless,​ these are quite simply great. ​
as​ a​ matter of​ fact,​ I ​ almost swore off Yoga for these babies till it​ dawned on​ me that it’s still Yoga,​ basically poses in​ motion. ​
However as​ pickmeuppers,​ these work.
Hardly has there ever been a​ time when I ​ did them and​ didn’t almost immediately have lethargy and​ sadness thrown off and​ have enthusiasm,​ joy and​ happiness miraculously restored as​ positive replacements.
Now,​ although these are my personal favorites,​ hey,​ feel free to​ explore whatever can get your heartrate up such as​ simple jumping jacks,​ hikes in​ the​ park,​ jogging,​ dancing or​ even sex with the​ one you​ love.
Combining these simple exercises with such ​Drug​free factors as​ intentional positive thinking and​ proper diet which ironically demands for abstinence from even the​ best of​ foods at ​ time,​ I ​ can confidently say one will be well on​ one’s way to​ overcoming the​ problems and​ challenges we all face in​ our daily lives. ​

Moreover,​ these principles form the​ basis of​ improved health naturally.
So,​ when next stress starts to​ creep in​ and​ you​ need a​ relief,​ get in​ motion with your favorite activities. ​
With exercise,​ even a​ little bit,​ does help.
In Friendship,​
