Everyone knows that exercise is good for your body – but it’s also important for your emotional wellbeing too. Exercise causes your brain to release chemicals that make you feel good. Exercise keeps our heart, body and minds healthy. There is evidence that exercise can help in depression, anxiety and even protects you from stress.
Regular activity helps you to:
- feel good about yourself
- concentrate better
- sleep better
- have a positive outlook on life
Most of us feel good when we are active. So – don’t worry about not doing enough – get started by building a bit more physical activity into your daily life. Even a small change can help raise self-esteem, help sleep problems, improve memory and concentration and takes your mind off negative thoughts.
