Relax Already: With Repetitive Exercises

We all seem to be a little more stressed these days. From the economy to the war to the election, it's tough out there. If your stress seems to be getting the best of you, don't let that stop you from working out. In fact, exercise can help calm your stress. You don't even have to hit the gym hard (though you can because that seems to work for some of us). Just the simple repetition of jogging, walking, climbing the StepMill, etc. could put your mind at ease and not to mention burn calories. To get the full effect, really try and focus on the repetition in your mind. You could even count in your head, "One, two, one, two . . . " as your feet hit the ground.

working out is the #1 way for me to deal with my stress so i really do agree with this one. i hope that a lot of people take this one to heart. the only thing that i do differently is that i do work out hard when i'm more stressed since i feel like i need to get the aggression out some how.
