Helping you get through tough times

The benefits of being active

The summer months are the perfect time to get out and enjoy the sunshine while it lasts! Whether it’s going for a jog or playing a sport, getting some form of exercise is vital for not only for body, but your mental health as well. images

Exercise doesn’t have to be the same, old boring routine consisting of going for a run or hitting the gym.

It can be done in so many different ways, you won’t even feel like you’re actually exercising!

Going for a walk in the park or rallying a group of friends to play a game definitely count as exercising. Not only would your body be benefiting, but your mind as well.

Mood and exercise

Exercise allows you to battle so many different things. It allows you to release unnecessary stress to getting a better night’s sleep, getting active can do that for you.

Nothing beats getting some fresh air and improving your strength, energy level, and overall confidence along the way. It will do wonders for you and your self-esteem as well.

Exercise at home

Remember, there’s no need to dive into some intensive exercise routine. Starting out slow and doing something you enjoy does more for you than doing nothing at all.

You could start to exercise at home first, if you don’t want to join something or start off in front of friends. You don’t need any exercise equipment either, there’s a tone videos on youtube you can try. Take it easy though!

Set some goals

It can be a good idea to set some goals, like making sure you run or walk four times a week, increasing the distance a little each time. Changing and pushing yourself might lesson the chance of you getting bored.

It’s also really rewarding to see how much stronger and fitter you get. Be mindful of what it does to your mood.

Take the time out to do yourself a favour and get up and get active. In the end, your body and mind will thank you for doing so.
