Some of you may have noticed the benefits of undertaking an exercise programme on your mental health:
Physical activity is proven to have positive effects on DEPRESSION, SLEEP, RELAXATION, ANXIETY PROBLEMS, SELF-ESTEEM AND STRESS MANAGAMENT.
We all have ‘bad’ and ‘good’ days, and these can be for many reasons.
I like to encourage in myself and others the belief that whilst you may not be able to control a LOT that is going on around you, you CAN take control of your health and fitness. YOU can take yourself out for a jog or a brisk walk, YOU can avoid the biscuits and prepare a healthy meal, YOU can pop some music on and go through a strength or cardio routine for 20 minutes.
Sometimes you may find it REALLY hard to get the motivation:
- If you feel TIRED or UNWELL, go for a slower more gentle workout involving a walk, or stretches and gentle core strength.
- if you feel STRESSED, go outdoors or stick some music on which uplifts you to take yourself OUT OF YOUR HEAD and into the moment.
- if you feel ANGRY, you need some strength work…or some boxing gloves, give me a call 😉
- If you are feeling good and motivated – GO WITH IT! Make the most of the rare free time and positive attitude and give yourself a great workout (be that a jog, a mini circuit in your living room, a YouTube workout… the possibilities are endless!)
I am here not only to make folks sweat but to try to help them be the best version of THEMSELVES, and that means Mind, Body and Spirit.
We will always find a workout to suit any mood (oh yes we will!)
