Neuroscience: How to Become Immune to Stress

Most people intuitively understand that exercise can improve your mood, but it was only last week that scientists figured out how it works. Their findings are of enormous importance to everybody who experiences stress at work.

According to a recent article in the New York Times, exercising causes your muscles to release a set of chemicals that block other chemicals the body releases in response to frequent stress.

In other words, constant stress brings you down, but consistent exercise lifts you up.

Many great entrepreneurs are famous for their ability to tolerate the stress and pressures of work. On the other side of the coin, there are plenty of people who’d like to be more successful but can’t “go the extra mile” because they can’t tolerate more stress.
