Exercise For Your Mind!

Exercise for Your Mind? Many people know that Exercise is good for our body however they ignore

how Exercise is good for our mind. In this blog post I will give you 7 ways Exercise is beneficial to Our Mind.




How Does Exercise Relieve Stress?


If you don't have a very active lifestyle, and often feel strangled by stress and depression, you may want to take note.

Here are the main ways exercise and stress are connected:

1-Body Systems

When stressed, each of your body systems (cardiovascular, nervous, respiratory, muscular etc.) need to

interact efficiently for you to respond well. Exercise helps your body systems practice interacting with each other,

in a healthy way. This directly leads to a better overall response to stress.

2-Endorphins

These are your natural pain killers that give you a "high". Although more research is needed, there's no doubt that

long periods of moderate to high intensity exercise, does have a happy affect on your emotions.

3-Fight or Flight

This is your natural reaction to any stressful situation. The problem is that much of today's stress doesn't require

either physical fighting or running. But your body still provides the chemicals for it, which can be harmful if they remain.

The best and most logical way to clear the chemicals, is to actually do some exercise.

4-Rhythm and Flow

Some exercise, like running and cycling, lets you get into a rhythm. That rhythmic flow of a repeat action relaxes your mind.

It's a bit like focusing on nothing and everything at the same time. It's your time. Just make sure you keep an eye on where you're going!

5-Socialize

Any sport or exercise with friends, gives you the chance to socialise, that you may not normally get. "Having a laugh"

with friends is more than just fun. It gives you a chance to share your problems, and know that someone is there if you need them.

6-Better Sleep

Lack of sleep often leads to a vicious cycle. You become more stressed and anxious during the day,

which means it's even harder to sleep at night. Exercise not only helps break that cycle,

but can lead to a positive cycle instead. When you sleep well, you'll have more energy in the day and be more productive.

7-Organize your Life

Stress is often caused by a lack of organisation and planning, whether it's in your work life or home life.

Following a workout plan, where you set yourself goals and ultimately have a sense of achievement,

will help you transfer those skills to the rest of your life.
