This is connected to the above point, but slightly different. A slower heart rate means you are not so hair-trigger stressed. This is why people say they de-stress with a workout, because at the end of a workout, they are were breathing deeper, getting more oxygen into their brain and giving their lungs an nice healthy stretch.
According to Meredith, the Women's Health Network, in a study of more than 14,800 women, those who had the highest levels of aerobic fitness were 55 percent less likely to die from breast cancer than those who were sedentary. That's an enormous decrease! Women considered reasonably fit had about a 33 percent lower risk of developing the disease. Researchers say that exercise may also help lower your risk of endometrial, lung, and ovarian cancer.
According to a study from Duke University, four months of exercise is as good as prescription meds at boosting mood and reducing depression. The reason for this lies in a brief description of Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors, or the class of drugs known as antidepressants. SSRIs slow down your brain's ability to reabsorb -- and therefore dilute -- the amount of serotonin in your brain. Serotonin is the key to happiness. It's a chemical, known as a neurotransmitter, that provides you with the ability to feel happy and calm. Drugs can keep serotonin in your brain, but exercise helps you release more of it.
