Health Tip: Exercise for Stress Relief

(HealthDay News) -- Exercise is a great way to stay fit, and to reduce stress.

The Anxiety and Depression Association of America offers these tips about exercising to relieve stress:

  • Get aerobic exercise (jogging, dancing, biking or walking) for at least 30 minutes at least five days per week.

  • Be active consistently, setting small, attainable goals. Take a 15-minute walk now instead of waiting until you have the time for a 2-hour walk.

  • Find the exercise that you find most relaxing, pleasant and enjoyable.

  • Listen to music, an audio book or a podcast while you exercise. Find an exercise buddy to work out with.

  • Don't expect instant results.
