I recently learnt that some animals have an innate ability to literally shake off stress when they go through a frightening/stressful experience. This of course reminded me of the Taylor Swift song “Shake it Off” and also got me thinking about how movement and particularly exercise can be used to shake off stress and promote wellness. Here are some great ways I discovered to get moving:
