Stress is out

Matthew Herring, a doctoral candidate in UGA’s department of kinesiology, was quoted in a BusinessWeek article about his research into the stress-reducing powers of regular physical exercise.

“Results showed that patients were more likely to adhere to, or stick with, shorter duration exercise programs, which might account for larger anxiety reductions compared to longer program durations,” Herring said. “Stated another way, better participation rates likely will result in greater anxiety reductions.”
