We already know that exercise is good for our body, but what about our mind? Weight loss, increased muscle tissue and improved posture are just some of the long list of physical benefits. On the other hand, what about the mental health benefits? Increased self esteem, improved body image, increased self confidence, better relationships and improved quality of life are just some of the key benefits of exercise on our mental health. It can also boost our mood, improve our sleep and help deal with anxiety.
In general people who exercise feel more energy throughout the day, sleep better at night, are sharper mentally, and feel more relaxed and positive about themselves and their lives.
As we live in an increasing fast paced society, it has never been more important to “check” in and look after ourselves, and have some dedicated time for ourselves. Exercise, and especially personal training, is a great way of ensuring we stay on top of our game, both physically and mentally.
