Today we often hear about the damage stress has in our everyday life. The story goes so far that all the difficulties related to health, but not identified and described by the medicine theory, are commonly addressed as the stress related issues. You all heard that one, right?
You are feeling anxious, you lack confidence, you feel depressed… and so on and on the list goes. Simply put – you are stressed out.
Medicine admits stress being the real thing; it confirms that stress is the king of all pains and headaches. And has real symptoms that damage the quality of life in every category of people round the globe. Even the youngsters and kids in an early age.
What is Stress?
Our body is fascinating biological machine, probably the best one in our known universe. We have several crucial systems that keep our body in good form and in good general condition. And when things are well, body functions are normal.
But, there is a catch…
As with any machine, it needs to be maintained well. When you have a flat tire on your car, problem is obvious as the solution to it – replace the tire or patch it. Simple solution to the most obvious problem.
Well, when we talk about our body, problems are mostly not so obvious. But the symptoms are. And they can get worse leading you to the point where you can’t do your everyday life tasks. Everything seems to be too much for you to bear.
And the almighty villain is stress.
Simply put stress can be described as the accumulated negative energy flow within our bodies. Some describe it as some sort of negative thought, something of psychological nature. Sometimes it can be a result of the inappropriate physical activity that is too hard to handle. It can be result of the human interactions, at work or at home.
Physical Activity Can Help You Feel Better!
When you engage in some form of recreation ( physical activities like hiking, riding a bike, running or jogging, swimming etc. ) you are replacing old accumulated energy from within your body cells with the new one. Your body will start to do what it does best – as a result of your actions. Your hormones will begin to flow, your blood will be flooded with oxygen, bringing it in every muscle tissue, every organ and cell in your body. All the junk products of several body functions will then be thrown out from your body, trough sweating and breathing. You are breathing life in and letting go of all other unwanted substances. And stress produces that substances, no matter in what form it comes down on you.
Be aware of one tiny catch. Stress can be caused by excess physical activity. We mentioned it earlier, right? To bypass that you need to know your measure, your limits. Don’t go running a marathon if you have trouble breathing after a few steps uphill. You need balance…
Only trough balance your activities will help you maintain a life free from any kind of diseases. If you lose balance, and start to go heavy with your desired sports, it can get back on you fast, and it will if you do it long enough.
So, find balance in your life. Engage in recreational sport of any kind and do it regularly. That way you’ll keep your stamina and your will to go higher than you thought possible.
