Some people scoff at the idea that ridding themselves of stress starts with relaxation techniques or other alternative means, such as what you eat, to say so long to anxiety.
The more traditional mindset would argue that vigorous exercise, punching a pillow or just yelling at the top of your lungs are more realistic, black and white and proven ways to combat stress and stays as cool as possible at home or work, whether you're dealing with an unforeseen car repair or are in the midst of a divorce.
Truthfully, relieving anxiety is different for every person. You can take a Yoga class and feel centered and refreshed just as easily as doing a karate kick through a wall or decide at a moment's notice that you're going to quit your job and live your remaining days on the beach. The former is much more recommended, realistic and also is proven to work when done with consistency.
Yoga, along with meditation, does wonders for eliminating your worries at the moment and over time when practiced for more than just a few sessions. Yoga has been put through a variety of studies, all of which come back positively for this type of exercise session. Everything points back to Yoga being a time honored activity that increases brain function and decreases stress.
Exercise certainly has its benefits as well, whether that the martial arts mentioned above or running on the treadmill or lifting weights. In addition to exercise, which is tailor made as you know to keep you healthy and well, getting sleep is particularly paramount in fighting off feeling weak and weary.
