Stressed? Work Out Anyway

MONDAY

It's a proven fact that exercise helps decrease stress levels. You may dread going to the gym or struggle finding the one hour to hit a workout, but if you follow through the reward is big. If you keep putting it off, you are only prolonging the stress that leads to a long list of health complications.

“Being constanly awash in stress hormones has some serious side effects, including (but not limited to) impaired memory, concentration, and work performance, speeding up the aging process and damaging memory cells in the brain, sexual dysfunction, infertility, hypertension, a weakened immune system and deposition of fat at the waist.
