9 Most Effective Exercises for Women to Reduce Stress

You feel devastated and the only thing that can soothe you is some delicious ice-cream? This is the way to deepen your stress. Your body will suffer even more, because it is a significant blow to your health. Instead, go to the gym, cope with the tension.

The saddest news about stress is that it is not solely the issue of emotional stability. Chronic stress can initiate more serious conditions in the long term such as high blood pressure, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and other. Daily ills may also result from stress and lead to sleep disorder, stomach issues and anxiety. Females suffer from stress consequences more often than males and are more sensitive to the implications of regular tension.

As we breathe deeper, the reaction of our body is to respond with relaxation. So, work out!

1. Yoga
Postures in yoga make you stretch and help you relieve physical strain. And just as any other physical exercise, they relax your body through intensified breathing.

2. Tai Chi
This kind of workout originated as one of Chinese martial arts. The essence of tai chi is to associate breath with physical movement.

3. Qigong
Qigong is one of the keystones of Chinese traditional treatment, somewhat similar to tai chi.

4. Walking
The easiest way to get fit and healthy. You need no special outfit or preparation.

5. Gardening
Gardening as a workout is rather moderate. Still, it is pleasant and healthy.

6. Pilates
Pilates combines the physical and mental systems of human existence. The focus is on body awareness.

7. Circuit Training
The greatest plus is health improvement through changing exercises within one workout: first you do some cardio exercises, then weight training, some rest – and back to sport again!

8. Tennis
Tennis can help avoid various stress-related disorders. What’s more, you communicate while playing tennis, and socializing is another way to reduce stress.

9. Dancing
Besides benefits to your health, dancing provides many emotional gains. If you want to become graceful and attractive, benefit your heart and improve your nervous system – dance!
