Written by on March 3, 2019 in Exercise and Fitness, Health with 0 Comments

Stress is a silent killer and it can ruin your life if it is left unaddressed or mishandled. Small bouts of stress may seem harmless but the more it is ignored, the more it amplifies and before you even realize it, it is already causing harm and damage to your physical, mental, and emotional being which may pave the way for serious health issues.

You can do yoga or meditation like what many people do to cope up with stress. Many people focus on these deep-breathing exercises to alleviate the stress that is burdening them. Or you can try a more fun way to cope with it like rebounding on a trampoline. Rebounders do not necessarily take much space. There are mini ones that you can place in the corner of your room, or your living room, garage, or basement. Surely, your rebounder will help you get through your life’s stressful moments as much as meditating does. 

Stress and Its Chronic Effect to Your Body

 A person that is going through normal stress will usually experience tightening up of the body because of muscle tension. Scientifically, the body goes through this to prepare the muscles against injuries and pains that the depressed mind may dictate. This muscle tension is designed to be lifesaving come life-threatening situations arise.

However, a person with chronic stress tends to experience extended muscle tension which may cause other health issues like tension headaches or migraine because of the muscle tightening in the shoulder, neck, and head. Worse than these, long-term, recurring stress can affect the respiratory and cardiovascular health of a person. More often than not, a stressed person experiences difficulty of breathing, taking a toll on the lungs or can suffer from panic attacks caused by hyperventilation. And chronic stress can be deadly to the heart, i.e. stroke, hypertension, heart attack.

Rebounding to Alleviate Stress

Does stress visit you often? Worry no more as there are many ways rebounding can help you cope with it. Not only is it good for your blood flow and your weight loss goals, it can also help you alleviate stress through these healthy ways:

1) Rebounding relaxes.

As rebounding is a form of heart exercise, it is designed to help you relax. Yoga and rebounding may be two opposite things but they can bust your stress just the same.

Rebounding is also an aerobic exercise which regulates, if not lower, your stress hormone levels including your adrenaline and cortisol levels. Taming that level down will eventually help you reach that natural relaxed state, helping you to function best.

2) Rebounding is a mood booster.

The more your mood is boosted or exercised, the more you are drawn away from stress, anxiety, and depression. Like in other form of exercises, rebounding makes your body release more feel-good hormones, thus alleviating your mood and drawing your stressed thoughts away. Not only that, when rebounding, your brain also releases endorphins, giving you a high feeling or others describe as heightened positivity or relaxation. It is a fun activity that will surely help you forget your worries and you will not even realize it.

3) Rebounding helps you forget your worries and troubles.

Rebounding is naturally fun. The thought of it already excites but the actual activity does way more wonders; helping you forget all your life’s troubles. It is a good distraction to the mind which keeps you away from your thoughts of fears and worries. Like in meditating, your worries and negative thoughts are automatically set and barred aside when rebounding.

4) Rebounding can help you get a good sleep.

A lot of stressed people are sleep deprived or insomniac and are looking haggard. More often than not, their thoughts are disturbing them, and as a result, their body’s natural sleep cycle is disrupted because it makes it harder for them to fall or stay asleep.

The good news is, rebounder is a great activity to address this sleep issue. When rebounding during the day or hours before bedtime, stress hormone levels become reduced or regulated and the body chemicals that make one feel good get released more. As a result, the body reaches the relaxed state, helping one to sleep faster and sleep longer throughout the night.

Rebound more specifically early in the morning or in the late afternoon as exercising during these periods is believed to be more effective in stimulating a good sleep-wake cycle.

5) Rebounding can reset your whole being, helping you regain that confidence you lost.

People who are stressed tend to binge eat or overeat and it is not even because they are hungry but because the act of eating helps them relax or the thought of eating the food they are eating soothes their mind. Hence, stressed people gain more weight and the odd thing is, when this point comes, their level of stress or depression gets worse.

But thanks to your mini rebounder and your cooperative, determined self, you will gain your fit body and confidence back in no time.

Rebounding is a good form of exercise which focuses on building up your strength and flexibility. Studies show that rebounding and running work the same good and you will start seeing significant results in no time for as long as you rebound for 15 to 30 minutes a day. By rebounding, you do not only excel in dealing with stress, unconsciously, you are also switching to a healthier lifestyle as you try to reach that fitness goal. Confidence strengthens the heart and will likely shield you further from stress and depression.

Thousands and possibly even millions of people in the world suffer from chronic stress, but rebounding can surely help address this. Rebounders will benefit from lower stress hormone levels, and higher endorphins and other feel-good chemicals. Rebound right and regularly; absorb more feel-good brain chemicals and help yourself towards that soothing and relaxing state. Say bye to the bad effects of stress and hello to your healthier and happier version.
