Exercise Can Help Grief
“Exercise is good for every organ of your body, including your brain. Your thoughts originate in the brain, and from these thoughts come emotions….When you are in distress, exercise may be beneficial. Swimming can be both an aerobic exercise and therapeutic at the same time. Water can have a calming effect on your body and mind. If you like exercise, try mixing it up. If you exercise at a gym instead go outside for a walk or a run. At the end of your outdoor or indoor exercise, consciously slow down and appreciate your inner state.”
