In a modern world, unfortunately, Stress is a part of most people’s everyday lives, even here in Ibiza. Or maybe you’ve come here to try to escape your stress-filled life for a little while.
What a lot of people don’t know is that stress is a very real medical condition, which causes amongst other things, restriction of bloodflow to the digestive and internal organs and the complications that may follow from that.
Stress can be a complex subject depending on your lifestyle and situation and it is beyond our control to remove it from your life, however we can begin addressing the physical symptoms immediately.
Exercising and stress relief benefits?
In surveys exercise is shown to be the public’s number one sucessful method of coping with stress.
How is it that activity that is physiologically almost identical to the actual physical response of stress itself, then be helpful as a coping technique?
We also use Stress Management Techniques to take an overall view of your position, including whether your current nutrition could be contributary, and we can also use the time to explore strategies to help deal with the causes, triggers and symptoms.
Whilst stress-busting is not our prime raison d’etre, a good Personal Trainer should be recognising the effects of stress on our Clients, and helping to address and reduce symptoms in the short-term through exercise, and in the longer-term work with the Client to try to reduce stress load and eliminate the physical effects.
Our weapon of choice against this is arguably the most effective treatment humankind have to date against the symptoms of Stress, and that is…
Study after study has consistently shown exercise to be virtually unrivalled as the No.1 effective treatment or outlet for individuals suffering from the physical symptoms of Stress.
We have in the course of our work seen this in action countless times, and take great pleasure in seeing people realise the positive power this has on their lives.
Anyone who has experienced the stress-busting effects of exercise for themselves will not need studies to tell them this. However if you would to know more about the multitude of different ways exercise can help you with Stress please do take time to read the working paper framed below.
An Extract says…
“Someone once said that if exercise was a pill, it would be the most powerful medication known to humans. The only problem is that it is difficult to get modern men and women to take that pill every day. Inactivity should be possibly be considered a disease state.”
