Rest Day

Christmas shopping bad for your health?

A strenuous workout routine might be a better tension tamer than a more moderate one, a new study at the University of Missouri-Columbia found. Researchers there first measured the anxiety levels of 24 women, ages 18-20 or 35-45. Then, on three occasions, the women exercised on a treadmill for 30 minutes at moderate intensity (60 percent of their maximum aerobic capacity) or at high intensity (80 percent of their max), or they read while on the treadmill.
