Researchers say anxiety levels are skyrocketing. Nowhere is stress higher than the uncertain workplace. A Gallup poll reported that 80 percent of American workers suffer from some type of work anxiety. What can you do about that? We’ve always known that exercise is essential for work/life balance and job productivity.
In fact, the lack of movement can be as bad for you as smoking a pack of cigarettes.
Now, a new study reported in Frontiers In Psychiatry quantifies the jaw-dropping impact regular exercise has in reducing your anxiety.
Swedish researchers studied nearly 400,000 people and found that those with an active lifestyle were 60 percent less likely to develop anxiety compared to less physically active people over a 21-year period.
You can’t fire your boss but you can be a better manager of your stress.
Just moving around can cut your risk of sudden cardiac arrest by 92 percent according to some estimates.
Plus, when you get moving, physical tension and mental stress melt away, and the solution to a mulled-over problem becomes crystal clear.
Get moving. It’s good for your heart and your mind.
