Stress Relief With Tai Chi & Qigong


We all face stress in everyday life, and most see it as either mental or physical, when in most cases it is both. How you choose to react to this stress will have an effect on your daily life.

When you are affected by stress the toll is taken on your health. When stressed, even at low levels your body chemistry changes, and your breathing will start to become shallow. This will start your body on negative hormones such as adrenaline, pulling you away from the positive hormones such as endorphins, serotonin, and endostatin.

The solution? Working out. Being active helps with stress and depression better than anything else, but do it for you.

Depression and Fitness 

Depression is a subject I have personally dealt with so it’s time to talk about it.

We all know exercise is good for the body, but it also has many benefits for your mental health too. Research shows that no matter the age or fitness level, regular exercise can be a great tool for your mental health.
Researchers have found that regular exercise can be just as effective as medication (without side effects) in relieving mild to moderate depression. Continuing your fitness path may also prevent a relapse.

The main reason exercise works for depression and mental illness is because, exercise boosts endorphins in the brain, and they make you feel good and energized.
