Hello and thank you for joining us on this episode today!

Stress is something we all encounter normally during the days, weeks and months of the year. To live a life that has no stress most likely isn’t much of a life. But what happens when we let it consume us where we start to have mental, emotional and physical problems? What can we do to help “dial down” our stress levels?

Fortunately the one thing we can do and have control of is our level of physical activity which has shown to help curb levels of stress especially if practiced regularly. Regular exercise can help curb stress levels to where they can be manageable and dealt with in a safe and proper manner. This has been shown many times over in scientific studies and today we share some if our best knowledge on the importance of exercise as stress relief.

2). Why exercise is usually the first thing that gets sacrificed when we are stressed out and what we can do to help avoid this scenario.

3). How learning from people that do exercise regularly to dial down stress can inspire and help you embrace this practice during stressful times in your own life.

4). Why exercising is not only good for our stress levels but also provides protection to our immune system which also helps guard us from getting sick thus, adding more stress especially if you live a busy lifestyle.

5). Why it’s important to start off slow and small if you aren’t used to exercising regularly to give your body the best chance to progress properly into a schedule that allows you to be active and help control stress.
