According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, the mind-body connection is a very real thing. When stress affects the brain, the rest of the body also feels the impact. When your body feels recharged, so does your mind. Scientists have found that it only takes five minutes of exercise for endorphins (natural painkillers produced by the brain) to start kicking in.
