Not one is exempt from worries because as responsible beings we are made to analyze to avoid or solve anticipated threats or its consequence. If you are constantly worried or anxious about something it can become a chronic condition that you definitely need to deal with. One who is overly anxious will have a tendency to a state of lethargy and a state where one cannot think straight. Though a person can still typically go about its daily routine, but the chore becomes heavier than when it does not have that alarming condition. Often, breathing start to accelerate to coup and supply the nervous system and heart-brain interactions.
Exercise or working on a physical activity has been proven by so many to help reduce anxiety and improve the persons mood. Anxiety and depression symptoms are eased up with physical activity and makes a person really feel good inside. However, it takes efforts on the person who is suffering from anxiety to do these physical activities because this is the last thing that an anxious person would ever want to do.
It does not have to be some specialized exercises to cure anxiety on the spot, but regular exercise will be a better remedy for it.
Exercise regularly done is something that would benefit a person psychologically and emotionally.
This includes gaining self-confidence because meeting exercise goals or challenges that is either big or small can incrementally boost the person’s self-confidence. It also distracts the person from dwelling on those negative thoughts that feed those anxious and depressing speculations since it needs to focus its attention to the physical task that is at hand.
Taking anti-depressants like alcohol or drugs is not going to help since the mind is not kept away from anxious thoughts by these things. Instead, allowing the person to dwell on them more exhaustively, and thus worsening their condition further.
Physical activity to combat depression does not only mean rigid workouts although regular exercise is good enough. In fact, some research shows that ‘physical activity’ such as regular walking or one that does not involve a formal program – may largely improve a person’s mood. What I am trying to say is that physical activity and exercise are not the same thing. Physical activity can curb anxiety but it will depend on the person himself what this physical activity will consist of to help him rid of his anxious thought. However, it must also nonetheless involve a physical activity to maintain one’s physical fitness.
