    Exercise is a huge stress and anxiety reliever for me – and it definitely boosts my mood. I notice a change in my overall attitude almost instantly. It also helps me put life into perspective, if that makes sense.

    Other things that help: talking with loved ones, reading inspiring pieces of writing or watching a lighthearted TV show.

    Glad you felt better!

    Great point! Lack of sleep does not always have to be disasterous . . . and exercise is a great way to combat the effects! Thanks for calling our attention to this!
