Do you sometimes feel frustrated by events or circumstances beyond your control, you feel your blood boil, your eye starts twitching, you can see the forehead and neck veins popping out, but don’t know how to blow off steam in a healthy and constructive way? If so, you may be interested to know that exercise or Beaufort fitness activity provides a positive outlet for all those pent-up emotions that are eating you up inside, overwhelming you and ready to explode.
In an article by the Mayo Clinic, they talk about how exercise – in any shape or form – subverts stress. And stress is contagious. So imagine, if your boss was stressed, but exercised to vent his or her frustrations, the resulting pleasant disposition would be passed on to you. Then the chances of you imparting that anxiety on to your spouse or child or another motorist on the drive home, will also be reduced. Exercise pays it forward, says Beaufort fitness experts. You don’t have to be a manager or a supervisor to feel pressured or stressed out – we all do, to a certain degree, at one time or another.
Learning to vent frustration in a positive, rather than a destructive way, is vital. If left unmanaged, it can lead to emotional, psychological, and even physical issues. It could be a factor in heart attacks, strokes, depression, and other serious conditions. Many research pieces confirm what Beaufort health and fitness professionals have known for a long time – that regular physical activity and a Beaufort fitness regimen has a calming effect on our nervous system.
Here are some of the ways exercise can help you manage stress and emotional turmoil:
1. It gives you a sense of control: Oftentimes frustration emerges out of the feeling that we are at the mercy of others – bosses, politicians, banks, etc., and have no say in our own lives. A Beaufort fitness routine gives you the power over your own health, mind and body.
2. It releases “feel-good” endorphins: Endorphins released by exercise are chemicals that raises the body’s levels of dopamine, seratonin, and norepinephrine hormones – all of which are proven stress-busters and mood lifters.
3. It makes you more resilient: When you exercise or workout in Beaufort fitness programs, you build up strength – not just physically, but you also receive the mental strength and confidence that provide an outlet for negative emotions and help you handle the curve balls life throws at you in a calmer and more level-headed manner.
