How Exercise Can Improve Your Mental Health
Everyone knows that exercising regularly is good for our bodies and our fitness levels, but not all of us understand how it can benefit our mental health. Those who suffer from mental health problems are twice as likely to die from heart disease and four times more likely to die from a respiratory illness. With this in mind, it is important that we take daily exercise during the COVID-19 lockdown, as is allowed by the government.
The benefits of exercising for mental health include:
• Promotes better sleep
• Gives you more energy
• Builds resilience
• Boost self-esteem
• Improves memory and thought process
• An activity that can help the whole family
• Can improve overall motivation
• Will improve your physical wellbeing also
Many of these benefits arise from the production of endorphins that are created in the brain when we exercise. It may feel like you do not have the energy to exercise but once you get into a routine of getting outdoors each day it will become something that you will look forward to.
