Mental Health Benefits of Physical Activity

Mental Health Benefits of Physical Activity 

  1. Decreases signs and symptoms of depression - not only does it help at the time, but it also can help you from relapsing
  2. Acts as a natural anti-anxiety treatment - exercise helps relieve tension and stress by releasing endorphins!
  3. Helps relieve stress - physical activity helps your muscles relax and by relieving stress in your body, your mind is also at ease
  4. Reduce symptoms of ADHD - exercising regularly improves concentration, motivation, memory, and mood
  5. Helps with PTSD - the physical movement of exercises benefits your nervous system by moving you out of the immobilization and stress response characteristics of post traumatic stress disorder
  6. Increases self-esteem - regular investment in yourself, including your mind and body, helps with your image of self worth and produces feelings of achievement
  7. Improves sleep - bursts of movement throughout the day can regulate your sleep patterns, and doing things like yoga or stretching at night can promote feelings of sleepiness
