The holidays can also be a letdown. Months of planning and anticipation and then in the blink of an eye another year has passed. While our bellies may be full from overindulgent holiday meals research suggests that one way to beat back stress and bust through the blues is through exercise. There is no question that mental health and physical health ab- solutely go hand in hand says Craig Lewin of FitCorp the own- er of Busy Body Fitness and Fitness HQ. Both retail chains with multiple locations throughout DFW provide expertise and a full array of home gym equipment. Once you get yourself in a work- out routine it always makes you feel better. You have a cleaner energy a better attitude and you become way more productive. Whats most important though is that the endorphins that get re- leased while training and after absolutely bring your stress level way down. It just makes you feel so alive. Mayo Clinic statistics support Lewins theory that regular exer- cise helps ease depression in a number of ways which may include releasing those feel good brain chemicals endorphins. Exercise may also help keep anxiety and depression from returning once someone is feeling better. Other psychological and emotional benefits of exercise include helping you Gain confidence. Meeting exercise goals or challenges even small ones can boost your self-confidence.
