Physical exercise is not a cure for social anxiety, but regular physical activity is a simple and effective means of reducing stress. Social Anxiety sufferers who exercise regularly are likely to find that engaging in sporting activity/walking etc decreases their level of anxiety.
Physical exercise is the outlet for the body when it’s in the fight or flight state. Exercise releases the natural chemicals — such as adrenalin — that accumulate during stress. Exercise relieves chronic muscle tension, reduces insomnia and decreases depression and anxiety.It is recommended that you consult with your doctor before beginning any exercise program.
