The exercise paradox of stress is backed by an April 2021 study, published by the peer-reviewed open access scientific journal PLOS One, that found mental health was “both a motivator and barrier to physical activity during the COVID-19 pandemic.”

This study looked at 1,600 people to figure out “how and why mental health, physical activity, and sedentary behavior have changed throughout the course of the pandemic.” What they found was potentially not so surprising: “Even though exercise comes with the promise of reducing anxiety, many respondents felt too anxious to exercise.
