Exercise - Your secret weapon against stress and the winter blues

Millions of people suffer from seasonal affective disorder during the cold season, and symptoms of these wintry blues often include stress. However, many find that exercise can be a tonic for emotionally down times.

In fact, the American Council on Exercise named stress reduction via workouts as one of the top 10 fitness trends for 2011. Exercise has many mood-enhancing and stress-reducing benefits, Dr. Wei-Shin Lai, M.D. and CEO of RunPhones, said. RunPhones is a company that produces lightweight headphones in a headband.

“Exercise boosts your endorphins, which are neurotransmitters in the brain that make you feel happy,” Dr. Lai said. “Plus, exercise reduces the cortisol stress hormone that builds up from sitting at a frustrating desk job. Activities like walking, playing tennis, yoga, hiking, etc. can help you forget daily stresses and clear your head.”

Added benefits that Dr. Lai noted include more energy, better figure, and improved health. If possible, sit by the window and get outside on sunny days as seasonal affective disorder is often helped by bright light like sunshine.

She added that sticking with an exercise program is a must in order to boost mood and relieve stress. “It helps to set easy goals and to do things that you enjoy,” she said. “Exercising to your favorite music can make it more fun. Our RunPhones help because they don’t fall out like earbuds, and you can hear outside noises like traffic or other people.”

“Any form of exercise can and should be part of a stress and blues-fighting plan,” Dr. Lai concluded.
