Physical exercise is not only very satisfying and pleasant to many people, but it is also an effective way to relax by tensing and relaxing different muscles as part of the activity. It also draws your attention away from your troubles and negative thoughts and feelings. The extra benefit is that, while you exercise, your body releases a natural chemical called endorphins, which trigger a positive feeling in your body and act as a natural calming agent.

In addition to health benefits such as increases energy levels, strengthens your heart, muscles, and bones, reduces body fat, and lowers blood pressure, exercise also reduces stress, lessens anxiety and depression, boosts self-esteem, and improves sleep. These can be any physical activity, from biking, dancing, jogging, playing tennis, to swimming and walking. A good run, quick walk, or swim can help you to get rid of any angry or anxious feelings.

If you can do physical exercise and it works for you, then use it. It is a quick and effective way to re-energize your body and mind and make you feel positive and hopeful.
