Stress Reducing Exercise Moves You Can Do in Minutes
As women with stress we've got to blow off steam before we lash out at colleagues or loved ones -- here are seven ways to help you do just that
Sweat it outOne way to work through stress is by doing cardio. Think spinning, sprinting, hiking, etc. -- an activity that gets your heart pounding and sweat forming. As Fowler says, it's a "great way to get your ya-yas out." Going to a class like spinning where the music is pumping and you're sweating will help release stress and instantly make you "just feel better because you get swept away by the class environment." It also won't feel like a "work" out. "I don't think anyone has not felt better after taking a spin class," says Fowler.
If you don't have time to squeeze in a class, sprint (or run as fast as you can) up and down your street a couple of times -- you'll get similar benefits -- in minutes.
