Do you want to avoid psychiatric medications?
If you do, consider walking.
Jasper Smits is a researchers and director of the Anxiety Research and Treatment Program at Southern Methodist University in Dallas. Dr. Smits reported the following findings regarding walking.
“Individuals who exercise report fewer symptoms of anxiety and depression, and lower levels of stress and anger. Exercise appears to affect, like an antidepressant, particular neurotransmitter systems in the brain, and it helps patients with depression re-establish positive behaviors. For patients with anxiety disorders, exercise reduces their fears of fear and related bodily sensations such as a racing heart and rapid breathing.”
Why not begin walking today? Why not choose to be less anxious and depressed?
