Un joven en forma explorando la naturaleza; caminando por desolados puentes colgantes, rodeando un lago alpino azul, y conduciendo por el camino abierto.

I was awakened by butterflies. But rather than being in some enchanting land with fluttering fairies and surreal colours, I stared up at my ceiling and was stressing about money . My old buddy Anxiety had returned. He came back into my world and as usual, did not even bother knocking…

Mi respiración se había vuelto corta. Tuve que incorporarme y aproveché el impulso para salir de la cama y prepararme para afrontar el día. Dios, ¿realmente sólo era miércoles?

Los 5 mejores ejercicios para aliviar la ansiedad

No hay problema. Me moví hacia el suelo, supuse que la posición de flexión, y procedí a noquear a las flexiones. 10-20-30, sin parar para un descanso hasta que llegué a 50. Las mariposas aún no habían desaparecido del todo, pero pronto serían como hojas muertas aplastadas en la palma de mi mano, hasta que pudieran mudar a un ataque de ansiedad en toda regla.

Since I understand I’m not the only one to have suffered from anxiety, I wanted to talk about the 1 thing which has always helped me, which has been to utilize fitness for anxiety relief. As simplistic as that might appear, it is sometimes the most simple, basic things in life which still work best. And therefore, it sometimes bears reminding.

So get up, get going, and keep moving. It’s kind of like being in a war zone. You do not wish to create yourself a sitting duck, so you need to keep moving! Here are my top 5 exercises for natural anxiety relief:

Sentadillas

They’re not only for hot abs any more! Tell that particularly to the individual experiencing anxiety in the pit of the stomach. The goal here is exactly the same as push-ups; just do as many as possible in sixty seconds. This is a fantastic exercise to get rid of butterflies and it is going to help give you sexy abs, if you eat right too.

Pull-ups

This one may be the toughest for some individuals, particularly in the event you don’t have access to a chin up bar, but you can purchase an over-the-door version, bolt you into the wall, beam/rafter from the garage, or even just use a tree branch in the yard or nearby park. Do as many as possible. Even if it is only 1 rep and try for two next time and so forth. This is just another exercise where you can improve quickly if you just keep at it.

Flexiones

Do as many as possible in 1 minute. Don’t worry (ha-ha!) about how many you can do or not do. Your goal is to just get going and gradually improve, but doing more every time. You’ll be amazed by how quickly you’ll improve.

Correr o hacer footing

Soy consciente de que no todo el mundo es capaz de atarse las zapatillas y salir a correr un par de kilómetros, pero en caso de que sea posible, hazlo. Si no es así, también es bueno, pero salga a caminar a paso ligero para aumentar su ritmo cardíaco y fortalecer así su sistema cardiovascular. El ambiente fresco es lo mejor, así que salga al exterior si es posible. Incluso si llueve. ¡Aprovéchalo!

Sentadillas al aire o flexiones profundas de rodilla

Simplemente agáchate hasta que tus muslos estén a un nivel completo de 90 paralelos al suelo mientras mantienes la espalda lo más recta posible. Puedes lanzar los brazos hacia delante para mantener el equilibrio y el impulso. De nuevo, haz todos los que puedas en un momento.

You’ll notice that none of these exercises take a fancy gym and that is the point. You do not have to shell out cash for anxiety relief! It can be achieved naturally, with a little effort, but as soon as you begin, you will feel better. To your health and success!
