Anxiety affects 40 million 18 years aged American people, states the Anxiety and Depression Association of America. The individuals have a high risk of ending up in hospital for a psychiatric disorder. But anxiety is treatable and exercise is one of the top methods to do so. According to sahlhealth.com, many people are now understanding that exercise not only benefits their looks, but also their mental state and sleeping patterns.

Exercise makes parts of body move encouraging blood flow to important organs in the whole body including the brain. More blood in the brain means clearer thinking which becomes vital in stressful situations. Exercise helps reduce production and levels of the stress hormones, cortisol and adrenaline in the body.
