Although not like a marathon trainer, it is ideal for the bride-to-be to exercise regularly. You stay fit and be ready to handle the stress in an effective manner as exercising is said to release endorphin, a hormone that is often referred to as the mood-enhancing chemical that you need the most to cope with the stress of the approaching nuptial date.
