How can excercise help anxiety if it makes your heart beat faster?

Endorphins = calm. When one exercises at a moderate comfortable level, the mind has time to solve problems and answer questions that you may be pondering when you are more busy. Endorphins are released which gives one an empowered feeling and sets the tone for the rest of the day. The key is moderate, and in this way, the heart is elevated and you are sweating but you can breathe and talk.
