Exercise for a stress free life

Stress has the uncanny knack of creeping up on most people and overstaying as a chronic companion, whether one likes it or not. Chronic stress can lead to constant aches and tensions in the muscles and joints of the body. Such stress is always cumulative and inevitably finds an outlet through the weakest link in the body or mind. If an organ gives way, you could be saddled with heart, kidney, lung, liver or some other problem. Even cancer. If your mind caves in, you could end up with emotional problems or even suffer a nervous breakdown. 

But relax! Simply avoid all this by junking stress on a regular basis. One healthy way is through regular exercise. Like aerobics, calisthenics martial arts, weight training, walking, jogging, cycling, swimming or whatever suits your body and budget. Even sports like football, badminton, tennis, table tennis and squash can be healthy exercise. Before performing any vigorous exercise, do check with your family physician. For those in the prime of youth, most forms of exercise are healthy. If you are in the middle years or past it, avoid vigorous activities like jogging, which could cause injuries or cardiovascular problems. A 30-minute walk in the mornings or evenings would be ideal.

However, the most all-round exercise is swimming, which tones up almost every muscle in the body, including the eyes. Do not swim after a meal, however.
