If any exercise is causing you stress it's NOT a good exercise for you. You need to find a physical activity that you enjoy that you can perform without hating it. I absolutely HATE the gym but I love to walk so that's what I do as exercise. I love to walk my dog so that's what I do as exercise. It becomes less stressful when you enjoy the activity you are doing.

How does everyone cope with the stress of daily exercise? The time to think and the non-stop brain chatter during my workouts are driving my stress levels sky high. How does everyone calm their minds while working out? This added stress cannot be good for me.

I tend to either do sports which require my full attention so that I can’t think of other stuff, or I listen to music / podcast if I’m doing something boring. Maybe you need to set aside some time for your brain to whirr separately? Sounds like you’re really busy and maybe need to give yourself a break?
