STRESS CHALLENGE

If you’re feeling sad or stressed, try taking a brisk walk. Or, hit the gym, shoot some hoops with the kids, or go to a dance class. Being physically active releases chemicals in your brain that can help calm your mind and lift your mood. These chemicals can help lower anxiety and depression. Physical activity can also boost self-esteem and confidence. This, in turn, can help you take on life’s challenges and cope better with stress.
