Which is best to kick stress to the curb? Sleep or Exercise?

When life gets crazy, and your stress starts to rise what should you do?  Sleep it off?  Or get up and start moving!?

According to a recent study, exercising will melt that stress away!

It’s no secret that exercise has been associated with improved moods, stress reduction and it is sometimes prescribed as a natural treatment for depression and anxiety.  Science Daily suggests that working out will create a positive and sustained affect on a individual’s state of mind.

Going for a job, taking a spin class, walking, weight training, etc.. May actually help a person better cope with stress and anxiety in the hours, and even days, after they leave the gym.

The study also found that 30 minutes of physical activity would help a person stay cool and calm in a stressful situation, compared to the same amount of rest.

And I am sure there are many people out there that would agree with the study!  I know I do.
