This is a link to another great article presented by Dr frank Lipman “Learn to recognize the signs of serious depletion and chronic stress “
“Exercise has a well-established anti stress effect — and it’s not just about the endorphins. Moderate exercise produces other mood-elevating neurotransmitters, including dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin. Lee notes that movement also breaks down stress hormones so they pass out of the body more easily.
Still, for those who are truly depleted, both Lipman and Lee emphasize moderation — and the importance of rest. Exercising too vigorously can be just as damaging as being too sedentary, triggering the sympathetic nervous system’s fight-or-flight response with attendant surges of cortisol.”
I hope you enjoy this read.
