Got stress? Research shows that regular participation in activities emphasizing the connection between the mind and body, such as yoga, tai chi, Pilates, meditation and mindfulness training, may prevent the negative effects of stress, including insomnia and headaches, and may improve certain health conditions such as high blood pressure, anxiety, and chronic pain. Such activities can also improve one's overall health and enhance resilience during times of stress.
