Physical Activities to Curb Anxiety
Not one is exempt from worries because as responsible beings we are made to analyze to avoid or solve anticipated threats or its consequence. Some of us can easily get over anxious thoughts yet there are those who have a chronic condition of anxiety that certainly needs looking at. A person who has chronic anxiety will make him unable to think straight and make him become lethargic and he has this feeling of exhaustion or unhealthy stress. People who have this condition can somehow still manage to do their daily routine but it becomes a heavy task to do so compared to someone who has no such condition. Often, breathing start to accelerate to coup and supply the nervous system and heart-brain interactions.
Anxiety is said to be best cured by doing physical activities and it can also help liven up the mood of a person. Physical activity makes a person feel better and eases symptoms of anxiety and depression. Somehow a person experiencing anxiety should be encouraged to do physical activities and with his determination help curb it; otherwise we can say that on his own, physical activity will be the last thing on an anxious person’s mind.
Regular exercise is enough to remedy one’s anxiety; it does not need to be heavy workout or some other rhythmic exercises, in order to help relieve the pent-up condition on the spot.
When one does exercising on a regular basis until it forms a habit, one will gain many psychological and emotional benefits from it.
One of the g great benefits of regularly exercising and meeting your personal goals and challenges is the boosting of one’s confidence. One other benefit of regular exercise is to prevent the person from dwelling on thoughts that can cause the anxiety to begin since there is a need to focus the attention on the physical task that one is doing.
While others also ridiculously try those – supposedly anti-depressant means by drinking alcohol or taking drugs to make them feel better, there is no bodily effort or pursuit to take their mind out from those depressing thoughts. And the person gets worse since he is still dwelling on his worries which taking things that are not good to take.
Lastly, doing something positive to manage anxiety or depression by doing a physical activity or exercising does not necessary mean going into a rigid workout. When we say physical activity we don’t only think of organized program of exercise, but something that makes your body work daily like walking or biking, can all take the person’s focus out of his anxious thoughts and help improve his mood in the process. What I am trying to say is that physical activity and exercise are not the same thing. So the physical activity will have to depend on the person’s preferences on what he will do to take out to focus of his mind on his anxious thoughts. But a physical activity is important and something that will also keep you physically fit.
