Looking to feel less stressed? Get ‘yo body movin’!
Exercise helps reduce stress, anxiety and depression - you will reap big rewards around your mental health and overall wellbeing:
Getting our heart rate up, our oxygen flowing and blood pumping has positive effects for our brain - you can feel it smiling
Moving our body bumps up production of the brain’s feel good neurotransmitter endorphins.
Serotonin is released - it fast tracks regulation of mood and stress levels.
Movement improves digestion - 90% of our serotonin is produced in our gut - so by taking care of the health of our gut we can reduce stress.
Exercise supports us in feeling grounded and connected - notice how great you feel after a walk and talk with a friend?
Getting physical moves us out of our head fast - by focusing on our body and physiology we free ourselves of being caught up in our inner dialogue loop and worries.
Physical movement builds strength - not just in our body but emotionally and for our state of mind - strength and resilience gets us through those tough times of high stress.
