We all know the physical benefits of working out but most people don’t realize that it is equally effective when it comes to stress management. Incorporating short bursts of activity in a busy schedule goes a long way in helping you de-stress. Not only will you develop a toned body, but stress management will be so much simpler!
When you move your body, endorphins are released. These feel-good neurotransmitters help boost your mood and eventually lead to positive effects including good cardiovascular and digestive health. It can also help strengthen your immune system and keep illnesses at bay.
This is also what Bollywood beauty Shilpa Shetty Kundra swears by. The OG yogini has shared a simple fitness trick on her Instagram feed, and we can’t get enough of it. She has encouraged her fans and fitness freaks to start the day with a liberated mind that is stress-free, and a short fitness routine helps the cause!
