Setting and achieving a fitness goal can also make exercising incredibly rewarding. The feeling of accomplishment and progress can bring a lot of joy to working out!

Looking at art can actually reduce stress. According to U.K. research, participants reported a decrease in high stress levels after a brief lunchtime visit to an art gallery. In fact, in an analysis of 15 studies, noted Neuroscientist Oshin Vartain explained that our brain automatically triggers pleasure and reward when viewing art. Experience this calming effect for yourself by viewing the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s interactive website.
You can also join Decatur Active Living for the 3rd Sunday Stroll – this month we will do a tour of the painted electric boxes in downtown Decatur. Walking and art- a great way to distress!
