Exercise is not just about weight loss, aerobic capacity, and building muscle. Exercise can have a great impact on our mental health when done on a regular basis. Studies have shown that exercise can treat mild to moderate depression as well as antidepressants without the side effects.
Exercise is a natural and effective anti-anxiety treatment. It relieves tension and stress, boosts physical and mental energy, and enhances well-being through the release of endorphins. Exercise can also lead to sharper memory and thinking, more energy, higher self esteem, and better sleep.
