Don’t we all agree that regular fitness can change the readings of your mental health? Every doctor would advise you to have 30 minutes of dedicated physical activity, that too at least 4-5 times a week. Continue reading, how fitness can change your mental health status.
Eases tensed muscles:
People with the most anxiety or people who are going through stressful periods have tensed muscles. This makes them have mood swings and feel wired. But this has a solution, moderate exercise would help them ease those tensed muscles and let go of the build-up tension.
Yoga for relaxation:
However, the correct form of exercise would help you deal with the stress better and get rid of tension and anxiety. I usually mix up all forms of exercises but my top preferred is Yoga. Since yoga is the best for stretching muscles and thus the goal. Stretch and relax.
Pause the negative thoughts:
It is a fact that mental health is sometimes connected with negative thoughts and this would lead to anxiety, depression and may even cause the OCD obsessive-compulsive disorder of having negative unwanted thoughts. Exercise would be the best thing you could do that would help you to interrupt the flow of the negative thoughts as well as you being fit and healthy.
Good health with no unwanted thoughts would be everyone’s cup of tea. But it would depend on individuals as well. With a clear mind, practice, consistency, and dedication you would get the best results.Tweet
Workout to benefit you with mental health.
Amazing boost of self-esteem and self-image:
Tell me if I am wrong! Being healthy, fit, and being in shape would give us amazing confidence in appearance and thus give us one more reason to work out. When you feel better while you look yourself into the mirror, this is what happiness is all about. “Happiness in small things”
Small goals, bigger help with mental health:
I am an absolute “small goal setter” Happiness I get when I reach my small goals is immense. Having small and reachable fitness goals would lead to performing better the next time you work out. Self-esteem would help if it is related to physical appearance.
Your stress response:
Mental health issues are directly linked to stress. If we observe, people with mental health issues would stress out so much and more quickly than people without mental illness. Being fit would do very well in checking the stress levels of individuals.
