"Have you ever felt a "runner's high," that relaxing, happy feeling after a bout of exercise? Research shows that it could be an effective treatment for some types of anxiety.
Researchers reviewed previous studies and trials on anxiety symptoms and exercise programs for healthy people, people with chronic illnesses and people who had been diagnosed with an anxiety disorder.
They found that exercise often helped to reduce symptoms of anxiety and can sometimes be used as a part of anxiety disorder treatment.
Exercise treatment showed the most consistent results for healthy people, people with chronic illnesses and people with panic disorder. The researchers emphasized that more studies are needed to look at the relationship between exercise programs and specific anxiety disorders like obsessive-compulsive disorder."
