The Best Holiday Stress Buster? Exercise
Women tend to get hit the hardest by holiday stress. Usually they are the ones doing all the party planning, shopping, baking and everything else that goes along with the holidays. The best solution for reducing this extra stress is exercise.
…and that’s on top of the usual workload. It’s no wonder the holidays are known
as one of the most stressful times of the year.
Unfortunately for women, they tend to get hit the hardest. Usually they’re the
ones picking out gifts, wrapping them, doing the holiday baking, and everything
else that goes along with making the season festive. And that means women are
more likely to get run down, develop headaches, have an elevated blood
pressure, and get ill during the holidays.
Of course the solution would be to scale back all the holiday activity. But that’s
not going to happen. So the second-best solution is for women to exercise.
“Exercise is known to beat stress and help people relax,” says Todd Cambio, CSCS
founder of Precision Fitness “And strenuous activity in particular can
help women lower their blood pressure, boost their mood, relieve the tension in
their muscles, and make them feel more energized.”
Ideally women should set aside at least 30 to 60 minutes three or four times per
week for exercise. Almost any exercise helps – such as walking or riding a bike
– but boot camps like (FAT BURNING BOOT CAMP) are becoming
increasingly popular among women because the high-energy workout is an
excellent stress buster. And the camaraderie motivates women to keep
attending sessions to keep receiving benefits.
“Of course it also doesn’t hurt that exercise also keeps the holiday weight off, “
Cambio says. “That alone helps reduce stress.”
