Do you feel like retreating when you feel stressed? Do you attempt to tune out the world by curling up in bed, watching television, or zoning out on Facebook?
The 2013 Stress in America survey shows that stressed out Americans trade their workouts for these sedentary activities, even though they know those activities do not effectively relieve stress.
Scientific data proves, time and again, that exercise elevates mood levels and reduces feelings of stress.
The next time you're feeling anxious, plan to watch your favorite television show, after a quick, cardio session on the treadmill.
