Stress at the holidays – December can be a stressful time with mounting to-do lists that include fighting shopping crowds, packed schedules, travelling, difficult relatives, gift shopping, financial strain, and other pressures. It can also be difficult for people dealing with any kind of family conflict, loss, breakup or loneliness.
It’s the perfect time to get out for a run. Exercise boosts the brain’s serotonin levels and can help calm nerves and reduce stress. So strap on your shoes and get outside.
