  1. Thank you for this article. This article was immensely helpful to me. I’ve found that exercising helps with my anxiety, depressing, and relieves so much stress. It sounds so simple, but the endorphines are wonderful. I started exercising a gain a few weeks again and the sweat and activity releases all the toxins and tension in my body. I’ve always heard about how exercise is the best medicine and it really is. I haven’t exercised in a year and when I started back, I became energetic, focused, and productive again. It’s one of the best feelings in the world.
