Grief Brief 35 - Exercise
Exercise is good for the heart, body and soul. A 20 to 40 minute aerobic activity results in improvement in the survivor’s state of mind. A vigorous pumping heart decreases anxiety, lifts the mood and creates a positive experience that persists for several hours. Psychological benefits associated with exercise are a welcome bonus for the bereaved. They are comparable to the gains found with standard forms of psychotherapy.
