You’ve probably heard exercise boosts mental health, but when you’re not feeling up for high-intensity spin class can you still reap some benefits from just walking the dog or walking with a friend?
Getting up and moving might be the last thing you feel like doing when you’re going through a rough patch. Bad feelings always seem better coupled with a Netflix binge than go for a power walk but a building body of evidence suggests switching binge tv watching for squats could be the secret to improving mind and body health.
Getting physical for mental wellbeing
Physical activity isn’t just great for physical health but a daily workout can change your mindset into a positive one. I’m guilty at times making up excuses not to go for a run or to the gym but each time I decide to get into my workout gear and do it I feel great and energised, not just right afterwards but throughout the rest of the day. It also helps me sleep better.
One way to encourage you to do more exercise is to invest in some comfortable gym clothes. By having new and comfortable clothes, you’ll feel more confident doing any sort of exercise. Depending on where you buying your gym gear, the price may vary but you can get some affordable pieces of clothing quite easily, especially if you use sites like https://www.raise.com/coupons/nike to find coupons.
These guidelines recommend 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous exercise every day for 13 to 17-year-olds. For over 18s, the guidelines are a bit looser and can start as low as 30 or so minutes of moderate activity per day.
The health benefits of regular exercise will be noticed in a short time. What’s more, the positive effects of regular exercise may last for a substantial period of time.
