Exercise to Improve Anxiety

Receiving a cancer diagnosis can be scary. It can also cause a lot of extra stress and anxiety to your life. More important than your physical fitness, is your mental fitness.


When stress affects the brain, with its many nerve connections, the rest of the body feels the impact as well. This also works in the reverse, If your body feels good so does your brain!


Exercise and physical activity causes your body to release chemicals called endorphins! These act as natural pain killers for your body and lead to better sleep, which in turn reduces stress!One vigorous exercise session can reduce symptoms for hours and a regular schedule of exercise may dramatically reduce them over time.


Your mental fitness is so important to me and those around you. I want to help you relieve your stress and anxieties! Getting on a regular exercise program is a great way to do that without having to add more medications to your list!
