Can Exercise Reduce Anxiety? Here Is What The Research Says.

Research says that laughing for 2 mins can be just as healthy as a 20 minute jog. So now I stand aside in the park laughing at all the joggers. 😂

Just kidding! Hopefully that made you giggle 😉. What are your favorite ways to exercise? It is so important to find ways that motivate you to move!

A study published in the journal Depression and Anxiety found that the risk of anxiety and other related disorders were less among people with high self-reported physical activity, compared with people who had low physical activity levels.
