We know that when you’re struggling with your mental health, getting off the couch is one of the last things you want to think about doing. But, if you can gather the energy, you’ll begin to understand how exercise can be a powerful tool in helping you feel like YOU again.
Research into the benefits of exercise on mental health show that it can be helpful in treating mild to moderate depression and anxiety – that’s why the NHS prescribe exercise to treat some mental health issues.
Studies show that regular exercise directly increases levels of several neurochemicals in the brain, including serotonin and dopamine. These chemicals help regulate emotions and feelings of reward and may be behind the immediate boost most people feel after working out.
