Is there connection between the movement of the body and spiritual health

Many times we feel tension, pressure, anxiety, insomnia and our life getting out of control. Things happen and we feel powerless to protect ourselves, not knowing an effective way to improve the situation.

Biological symptoms such us stress and pressure are characterized by tense muscles, rapid breathing, sweating and adrenaline. Thousands of years ago these were adaptive responses of human body, when face risk. Back then, we used to react with fight and flight. Today we do not have this opportunity and we have to face these situations almost daily. Exercise can relieve these emotions and give a way to adrenaline. Surveys of psychologists Kathleen Moore, in Duke University Medical Center in fifty people following an exercise program, showed 82% reduction in symptoms of depression, tension, anger, confusion and fatigue.

Aerobic exercises seem to have better results in improving mental health. Starting small daily activities such as walking for half an hour you can move gradually to more intensive exercises such as running a very slow pace, swimming and cycling. These exercises increase your metabolic rate and heart rate and have significant impact on improving mental health.

Start with short distances and slow rhythm. If you feel tired, stop for a few minutes and continue later. The first five minutes and the first days are the hardest. But you have to resist the old habit of inactivity. Old habits lurk. The harder thing is, to start an exercise program, that’s why you have to set easy and achievable goals.
