Exercise and Mental Health

How does exercise help my mental health?

  • Exercise can help reduce stress as working out in-it-of-itself burns energy that then cannot be used elsewhere.
  • Working out and exercise can help release neurotransmitters and hormones that can improve mood.
  • Overtime exercise and its results, commitment to the process, and staying disciplined can help increase self-esteem and self-confidence.
  • Exercise has been shown to increase blood flow throughout one’s body. This is especially important in the brain region as increased blood flow can increase overall cognitive function.
  • Engagement in exercise can be a great way to socialize and increase one’s social network in the community.
  • Routine exercise can help a person regulate their sleep patterns by following consistent routines.

Exercise is a broad topic and will look different for everyone given their ability, health, and age. The mind-body connection is alive and well in all humans and exercise is great way to build this connection in a healthy manner.

If you are thinking about beginning to exercise it is important to consult your medical doctor first to gain clearance to exercise. A personal trainer may also assist you with this new journey to ensure you train appropriately.
