Benefits of Exercise for Mental Health

Benefits of Exercise for Mental Health

Exercising regularly has a range of benefits for your mental health. Not only does the actual act of participating in physical activity release endorphins to your brain which will make you feel happier, calmer and help you to clear your mind, it can also help in a range of other ways.

Since exercising regularly can help to improve your physical appearance due to muscles which are stronger and more toned and weight loss, this can help to give your self-esteem a boost, resulting in increased levels of self-confidence which in turn can influence your stress levels. Along with that, exercise is important for keeping you in good physical health.

Studies have shown that regular exercise can help to prevent against diseases such as cardiovascular disease, stroke, and even some cancers. Since poor physical health can be one of the biggest causes of feeling stressed or at the very least contribute to increasing anxiety levels in stressful situations, exercising regularly can help to reduce stress by giving us less to be stressed about.

Regular exercise can also help with issues such as muscle or joint pain, which in turn can help you to feel better, stronger, and healthier overall. In turn, you’ll feel more able to take on stressful situations and will be less likely to be worried about your own health or dealing with pain and discomfort.

Getting Started With Exercise

If your lifestyle has been more on the sedentary side than that of the active recently, there’s nothing to worry about as gentle exercise is often enough to help improve your stress levels. If you’re taking up exercising regularly for the first time or haven’t done much exercise for some time, it’s important to make sure that you start off slowly and gently to make sure that you give your body the time to get used to the increase in activity and gradually improve your strength.

Jumping straight from the sofa to a strenuous exercise routine can do more damage than good. So, don’t feel bad if you can only do a little bit of exercise at first – as you continue to practice, you will be able to increase the amount that you do.
