For The Mind
When you think of exercise, you think of the benefits it has just on the body. Exercise does not only do the body wonders but is also great for the MIND. With the stress and pressure of modern day life we need to look after our mind and mental health more than ever before.
Exercise is great to fight off stress, help with depression and to clear your mind. When you exercise your body releases chemicals called endorphins, you might have heard of this before. Endorphins trigger a positive feeling in the body and this is what gives you a buzz and makes you feel good after a workout.
Through my experience when I'm feeling low, stressed or my mind is ticking away thinking about a million things, going for a run is my medicine. It clears my mind, makes me feel free, refreshed, energised and I feel ready to take on the world again when I'm done.
Just a few benefits of doing regular exercise includes:
Help depression and anxiety
Boost self esteem
So put your headphones on, turn the volume up, hit the weights, go for a run, zone out and free your mind! A healthy mind is a happy mind.
