Put on your best athletic wear (may we recommend ViSH NYC?) and get active because exercise not only improves our physical health but mental health, too!
Have you ever noticed that you feel more relaxed and focused after a good exercise session? Whether this is an intense workout, light training, or even a leisurely walk - being active makes us feel better both inside and out.
Yes, we all know that exercise is good for our health and physical fitness, but did you know how much exercise can affect our mood? Feelings of anxiety, stress, and worry can be greatly alleviated through regular exercise. For those who are regularly active, you know what we’re talking about. For those who aren’t - we encourage you to get up and start moving; you’ll soon see what we mean.
So next time you’re thinking of skipping that exercise - DON’T! There are too many benefits to being active and you’ll soon find that one good thing leads to another...
According to Harvard Health Publishing:
"The mental benefits of aerobic exercise have a neurochemical basis. Exercise reduces levels of the body's stress hormones, such as adrenaline and cortisol. It also stimulates the production of endorphins, chemicals in the brain that are the body's natural painkillers and mood elevators. Endorphins are responsible for the 'runner's high' and for the feelings of relaxation and optimism that accompany many hard workouts — or, at least, the hot shower after your exercise is over.
Behavioral factors also contribute to the emotional benefits of exercise. As your waistline shrinks and your strength and stamina increase, your self-image will improve. You'll earn a sense of mastery and control, of pride and self-confidence. Your renewed vigor and energy will help you succeed in many tasks, and the discipline of regular exercise will help you achieve other important lifestyle goals."
You may be thinking “but I’m busy everyday” or “my schedule doesn’t leave room for regular exercise” - instead, shift your thinking and make physical activity a priority despite your busy schedule. After all, the benefits are too good to pass up.
