According to Ayurveda, stress is a state where the mind is imbalanced. The mind is considered to be balanced when it is not agitated, and is firm and stable. When the mind is in a stable state, the individual has the maximum potential to act or behave in ways that continue to keep the mind in a balanced state.

More specifically, the mind has three states or "gunas". They are "sattva" (knowledge, purity), "rajas" (action, passion) and "tamas" (inertia, ignorance). Mental disorders or imbalances are caused when "sattva" decreases and "rajas" and "tamas" increase. As "sattva" decreases, mental strength, determination, and the power to discriminate.

How to Reduce Stress through Exercise: -

• When you exercise your body produces endorphins, which provide a natural high. The increased level of endorphins in your body will help you to think more positively about everything in your life, which in turn, helps reduce stress. • Whether you are running alone, or playing basketball with others, focusing on the physical activity that you are involved in will reduce your stress. By focusing on your exercise routine, you are forgetting about the stresses of your day, and your "to do list" for the rest of the day. This plays a big role in overall stress reduction. • Regular exercise can also reduce your stress levels by increasing your self-confidence and improving the mood you are in. When you are less stressed out, you feel better about things in general, and have less of a tendency to feel depressed about matters, so get out and exercise today.
