Walking and Well.....
by Shyronn Crider
I have only just found out the truth in exercise being a stress reducer.
During the spring I started a "diet", and well, while I was losing weight, the toning still needed some work. I am not the person that hits the gym at 6 in the morning, nor do I enjoy a brisk evening run. If I have to leave the house, I won't to it.
So, that left me looking for a good home DVD workout. I found Leslie Sansone's DVD Home Walking videos. Nothing fancy, no dance moves, highly motivational.....I got my hands on at least 4 different ones!
Then I got to work. Literally. After a few months, weight is still slowly coming off, toning is happening, and... less stress!
I didn't really see the stress thing until I couldn't workout for 10 days or so. The change was amazing, enough that I now hardly allow my self to miss a workout.
If someone is under stress----I would strongly suggest exercise before anything else, as it has helped with both stress and also with an mild on going bout of depression.
