Positively Impact your Mental Health With Sport
Even short bursts of regular exercise has a proven positive impact on mental health. Which is why joining us for regular Fitness Sessions could be the first step for better mental health for you. Here are just a few ways in which sport and physical activity can positively impact your mental health.
Improve your Mood: Exercise releases feel-good hormones, which tell your brain to improve your mood. Recent studies showed that people who categorised themselves as feeling low noted a significant improvement in mood after they undertook physical activity.
Reduce Stress: People who partake in regular physical activity often have lower stress levels.
Increase Self Esteem: Exercise can often help you to feel better about yourself.
Tackle Depression and Anxiety: GP's often prescribe regular exercise as part of a Mental Health programme to help sufferers of Depression and Anxiety. Taking part in regular activity and sport empowers individuals to self manage their recovery.
Sleep Better: Physical Activity will help to tire you out during the day and therefore help you to get a better nights sleep.
Connect with new people: Sporting activities provide the opportunity to connect with like-minded new people, without the pressure of finding a common ground.
