The Key to Reducing Stress

While stress can be a normal part of life, not everyone knows how to properly manage it. Many causes of stress can be systemic and can be related to forces that no one can control, but there are simple activities that can be done to help.

A growing body of evidence supports the case that physical exercise can relieve stress. Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh found that areas of the brain that are involved in physical movement have a relationship to the adrenal glands and can play an important role in the body’s response to stress.

Exposure to nature can also help to reduce stress, according to a study from Stanford University—the study found that participants who went for short walks in nature felt better than those who walked through busy city streets.

So, the idea is to get some physical exercise in your day walking though some pleasant surroundings.
