Exercise is vital to maintain good health and most ofrepparttar 150538 time,repparttar 150539 benefits of exercise far out-weighrepparttar 150540 drawbacks. But if you suffer from a stressful or a depressive illness, exercise can actually make you feel worse. But how can this be?

I'm sure you've heardrepparttar 150541 following statement over and over again: exercise can help you to beat stress, or alleviate anxiety or boost a depressed mind. This is only true in part. Because many exercises can actually worsen these illnesses. And even if you perform exercises that can help, these exercises will only help temporarily.

The reason many people believe exercise to be helpful in combating stressful and depressive illnesses is because when you exercise vigorously for longer than 20 minutes, your body floods with endorphins. These chemicals give us a buzz, and this is why it is widely believed that exercise can cure stress, depression or anxiety.

If you're suffering a stressful or depressive episode, you'll know that no matter how regularly you exercise,repparttar 150542 bad feelings return. The only way to beat these illnesses is to treatrepparttar 150543 root cause: flawed modes of thinking. Exercise, though great for our bodies, simply doesn't do anything to address modes of thinking.

When my anxiety was at it's worst back in 2000, I exercised 4 times a week. For 2 days, I'd perform weight-training exercises. These exercises arerepparttar 150544 type of exercise that can actually make you feel worse because you have time to think about all ofrepparttar 150545 issues and problems you have in your life atrepparttar 150546 time. I'd also warm up and warm down on bike machines or cross-trainers. Again, you can perform these exercises easily so you can think about your problems.
