You may already know that stress can negatively impact your quality of sleep, mood and even your social behaviour; however, did you know that chronic, ongoing stress can also increase your risk of hypertension, heart attack and stroke, as well as negatively impact your nervous, reproductive, respiratory and musculoskeletal systems?1

Stress is, inevitably, a part of everyday life; however, it is something that can be managed and staying active through regular exercise can got a long way to helping you manage/reduce your stress. Through exercise, our bodies produce endorphins, which help alleviate pain and stimulate the production of dopamine, a “feel-good” chemical in our brains. For many people, exercise is a great way to reduce stress and, when done regularly, can help individuals better manage it all together.
