Fighting Anxiety

We all have a good handle on why exercise and leading an active lifestyle is beneficial to our lives. But are there more benefits that we are not fully realizing? Since many of us already lead an active lifestyle, we are reaping these awesome benefits, but what about that person who isn't active? What if they are a person that struggles with trait anxiety as well? Well, this article's findings lead us to believe that there are more benefits than the ones we already know about. This article states that it's control group who did 10 weeks of step aerobics/dance vs the group that didn't had increased physical effects, but more interestingly they had a reduction in anxiety. This is interesting because it shows the mental benefits of exercise as well.
