QUESTION: Does working out reduce stress?
ANSWER: Any kind of physical activity, especially exercise causes the brain to produce ENDORPHINS. These naturally produced painkillers have been proven to improve the ability to sleep, which consequently reduces STRESS. Also, I highly recommend getting into the habit of meditating on a daily basis. Just the simple act of taking deep breaths can also produce ENDORPHINS. Challenge yourself to find a healthy way to alleviate stress. - 1 hour ago
