Exercise has been found to be an effective tool against stress, anxiety and depression. Going for a run or a jog or a cycling session can be refreshing and calming for your mind and body, especially when you do it in the morning. The release of endorphins can make you feel light-hearted and give you mental clarity throughout the day.
