Can exercise really improve mental health? Short answer: YES!! Exercise is good for your physical and mental health. Bowmar Nutrition is going to dive into just a few of the benefits exercise has on your mental health and why it is SO important.
Exercise Reduces Anxiety and Depression, and Increases Overall Mood:
Think about how your mood just shoots up every time you finish your workout. You feel 10x better than when you first showed up or started. Exercise has been proven to boost your mood since you are releasing endorphins and not just any endorphins, the “feel good” type of endorphins! That is why you will hear doctors recommending exercise as a part of a regimen for improving symptoms of anxiety and depression. Bowmar Nutrition can attest to the many studies that show exercise can help reduce anxiety and depression!
It Improves Self-confidence:
Exercising can help boost your self confidence tremendously in many ways. First of all, the changes you will start seeing in your body over time can help boost your self-confidence, as will the functional gains you’re seeing. The more you exercise, the more comfortable you will be. We at Bowmar Nutrition know how hard it can be to feel confident on your first day of an exercise routine, especially the first time you step in a gym. Over time, this feeling will fade and you’ll feel great as you see the gains you make.
Exercise Supports Healthy Brain Function:
Exercising helps strengthen your brain in many ways! It can boost your memory retention and problem solving skills. It is even known to clear your brain fog. It can also help you focus on your daily tasks and expand your thinking. It even slows down your brain’s aging process over time!
Exercise Promotes Better Sleep:
All of us at Bowmar Nutrition know the better you sleep the better you feel. Exercise can help you fall asleep faster and sleep more deeply. Exercising increases your body's temperature which can help ease your mind and have a calming effect. This can help you get better sleep through the night.
