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.
