Researchers said that it is well known that exercise betters mood, among its other benefits, but not much was known on its impact on emotional state. They have found that moderate exercise serves to buffer effects of emotional exposure. If anyone exercises, he/she would not only reduce the anxiety, but also would be able to keep that shrank anxiety when faced with emotional events.
J. Carson Smith, University of Maryland’s School of Public Health’s assistant professor, whose research searches how physical activity and exercise affect the mental health and brain function, equated how moderate intensity cycling and a quiet rest time (both for thirty minutes) affected the levels of anxiety in a bunch of healthy college students.
He found that quiet rest and exercise were equally effective when it came to reducing anxiety levels. The new study also hints that exercise may be important in serving people to improve life’s daily stresses and anxieties. The researched has been published in journal Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise.
