As a soccer fan, I can share my experience with you. My team was down by three goals in the first half. At halftime, I was in serious mental stress, so I stepped out of my home and walked around my lawn. Which is not very big by the way. In a short time, I felt relaxed and stress-free. When the game resumed I was very relaxed watching it and in the end, my team won. I would not have finished that game if I had the same level of stress I started the game with.
