Stress-Busting Exercise Moves

April is Stress Awareness Month and with the tragic event of the Boston Marathon (be sure to check out ways you can help Boston here), we know more than usual are a little stressed these days. While we all know exercise can be an excellent way to relieve stress, did you know there are actually “targeted tension-busting moves” to help “boost your stress reduction.”

Well according to an article Stress-Relieving Exercises, “cardiovascular exercises can get endorphins pumping and boost your mood, but strength training exercises can also have a positive mind-body effect.” The video belows shows effective tension-reducing exercises that can be done anywhere. You can “incorporate one or all of these exercises into your fitness routine [to] help calm [the] mind while also toning the body.”
