Exercise increases endorphin production (promotes relaxation and good mood; i.e. “runner’s high”) and oxygenates your muscles. Running is perhaps the best option, if you are fit to run. Otherwise, try aerobic classes and swimming.
The key is to be consistent; at least three times a day for 30-40 minutes. If you are short on time, do a 20 minute speed walk around your office or at home.
You can kill two birds with one stone by running in sunlight, around 11:00 am when the sun is not too strong. Run without a shirt, or if you’re a woman a sports bra, and shorts to maximize sun exposure to your skin. This will stimulate Vitamin D production, which was covered earlier.
