I would say more exercise is almost always better. Exercise has been proven again and again to lower levels of psychological stress; it does this in part by increasing the level of endorphins in the brain. Endorphins help you feel better physically as well as mentally; they can function as natural pain killers to alleviate the effects of physical stress.

Additionally, a well-designed exercise routine can enhance both strength and flexibility, which makes the body work more smoothly and can help to prevent injury. Overall, no matter what sort of stress you are enduring, exercise can help you stay healthy and get through it.
