From the Paper:

"Biologically speaking, these activities increases the respiration, thus triggering an increase in oxygen levels in the blood, with a simultaneous increase in the rate of heart beat, thus sending more oxygen and glucose to the muscles. All this activity therefore enables the human body to sustain our actions in situations of anxiety. Throughout life, these actions are a source of building self confidence, self esteem and the inner will to face future challenges."
