How can we cope with the affects of stress on the body? Simple. Exercise. Exercise is the perfect healthy outlet for the buildup of adrenaline. The bonus is that exercise will help you to relax afterwards. This is known as the parasympathetic rebound in which the hormone acetylcholine is released. You've probably heard that living a life of moderation is healthy. Living a sedentary existence is not natural nor healthy for the mind and body. Step away from the ice cream, candy and chips. These foods can only provide temporary comfort from daily stress. Exercise provides a long-term and healthy approach that is unquestionably the best outlet from the daily stressors of life and enables hormonal balance. I highly recommend it.
