Ten Ways Rebound Exercise Helps You Deal with Stress
1. Makes you feel less anxious - Stress can make you feel anxious, which causes a chemical imbalance. Studies show that people feel less jittery and hyperactive following rebound exercise.
2. Relaxes you - One rebound exercise session generates between 90 and 120 minutes of "relaxation response". This post-exercise euphoria improves your mood and leaves you feeling relaxed.
3. Increases alertness - Studies have shown that when large muscle groups repeatedly contract and relax as in rebounding, the brain receives a signal to release specific neurotransmitters, which in turn make you feel relaxed and more alert.
4. Makes you feel better about yourself - Think about those times when youíve been rebounding regularly. Havenít you felt better about yourself? That feeling of self-worth contributes to greater stress-management.
5. Reduces depression - Some researchers believe rebounding can be more effective than medication for treating depression in some people, especially when combined with improved eating habits.
6. Helps you sleep more restfully - Distress can make it difficult to get a good nightís sleep, but studies show that people who rebound regularly sleep better than those who donít.
7. Increase energy - Distress can leave you tired and weary, because your body is spending excess energy trying to get you back to homeostasis, but even ten minutes on the rebounder can go a long way to upping your energy level. And the old adage is true - the more energy you use, the more you seem to have.
8. Rids the body of distress-causing adrenaline and other hormones - Vigorous activities such as rebound jogging and the strength bounce are particularly effective.
9. Encourages a healthier diet - People who exercise regularly tend to eat more nutritious food. And itís no secret that good nutrition enables your body to be healthier. And the healthier the body, the happier you can be.
10. Helps you take time for yourself - Whether you rebound alone or with a friend, itís important to take time for yourself during stressful periods.
