Stressed Out? A burst of activity is the answer

When you're angry or stressed, it's easy to grab a candy bar, smoke a cigarette, or gulp another cup of coffee to cope. What is the ideal antidote? A healthy activity such as a few total body stretches, exercise or take a walk. Research has proven that a few minutes spent on putting the body to work in a healthy way – 10 minutes or more – will provide the mental boost needed.
