September 07, 2011If you're still smoking tobacco, you probably know how hard it is to quit! Remember, the returns are huge, so keep your eyes on the prize! When you feel that craving coming, get up and take a walk! According to 14 new studies, low-intensity exercise like walking, bicycling, even stretching may be enough to curb the craving to smoke. Exercise also helps reduce irritability, poor concentration and other withdrawal symptoms caused by quitting smoking. Researchers believe exercise curbs cravings because it reduces tension and increases the same mood enhancing brain chemicals that nicotine boosts. Studies also found that exercise may be as effective if not better than oral nicotine replacement therapy. Nicotine gum can take about 10 minutes to kick in while a walk is immediate! You'll also get a great workout, which will help your whole body feel better!
