While exercise has numerous physical benefits, many people rave about regular exercising because of the way it makes them feel mentally. Exercise relieves stress, improves memory, improves sleep, and increases energy and self-esteem levels.
Exercise has also been proven to positively impact mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety and ADHD. Exercise releases endorphins, chemicals that energize a person and improve their mood. Endorphins also relieve tension and stress, producing benefits for both depression and anxiety. Concentration and exercise also have a positive correlation, which helps relieve symptoms of ADHD.
Even if you don’t experience these mental health conditions, your overall mental health would greatly benefit from regular exercise.
