(Video-Interview): Exercise and Mood Regulation; How Tim Discovered the Benefits of Physical Activity on Mental Health

1280 720 Dr Rozina Lakhani

Are you suffering from stress, loss of energy, and negative mood? Do you want to know how exercise can help improve your mental health? 

Research suggests that physical activity increases our self-esteem, mental alertness, and energy. It also puts us in a positive mood, therefore reducing stress and anxiety, especially during these challenging times.  

Walking, running, jumping, and other forms of physical exercises can trigger the body to release chemicals called ‘Endorphins’, which help reduce our perception of pain and generate positive feelings in our brain.

If you’re interested in improving your mental health with physical exercise, this video will surely help you.

In this episode of Happy and Healthy Mind with Dr. Rozina, Tim Davis shared the story of his traumatic childhood and multiple addictions; his journey towards recovery; and some practices and techniques that helped him stay sober and adequately manage his physical and mental health. The insights he gained from this experience and the methods he applied may help you as well.

Tim Davis is a high school teacher, a triathlon coach, and a proud advocate for mental health awareness. He is the author of TRIPOLAR: The Story of a Bipolar Triathlete, which chronicles his journey to overcome his childhood trauma and multiple addictions by joining triathlons and ultrarunning.
