The Best Way to Reduce Stress
Stress is hard to escape in today’s fast-paced world. It has become a big challenge because our lives aregetting faster and we haven’t learned how to cope with it, and because the sources of stress are many.Since there is no cure-all for us to deal with stresses and strains of our daily life,every one of us is trying in our own ways to reduce stress.
As for me, the best way to reduce stress is exercise.Firstly, according to medical research, when we exercise, our brains release certain chemical substances which bring feelings of happiness and relaxation. Secondly, physical exercise benefits both our mind and our body. While stress is mental, the symptoms of stress are mostly physical, such as skin problems, high blood pressure, fatigue, insomnia and frustration, etc.Physical exercise not only helps us reduce stress, but also keeps us fit. Consequently, a fit person is most probably a happy one.
Last but not least, physical exercise in this case doesn’t consume too much time. Physical exercise for the purpose of reducing stress shouldn’t be too violent and fierce. We can engage ourselves in some regular exercise such as walking, jogging, dancing or swimming on a daily basis.There are many helpful ways to reduce stress and, as I mentioned above, none of them is panacea for all. We should find our own ways and incorporate them in our daily life routine to prevent stress and reduce its effect on the body. For me, it’s a 30-munite jogging every day.
最后，体育活动并不会浪费我们太多的时间。为了减压而进行的体育活动不需要太过激烈 。我们可以做一些日常的运动，例如走路、慢跑、跳舞、或是游泳 。我上述所提到的方式都能够帮助我们减压，但是这些全都不是万能的 。我们应该寻找一种方式将它们融入到我们日常的生活之中，这样能够帮助我们减压，并减轻对身体的影响 。对于我来说，我每天会进行30分钟的慢跑 。
