Is exercise a chore or do you enjoy it?
I know it is my job, but I do feel so much better after exercising whether online or face to face. It keeps me motivated and helps with my mental health.
I don’t just mean attending a class, you may find walking, swimming, tennis helps you. Some people prefer exercising outdoors.
Exercise is good for stress, anxiety, fatigue and is known to improve mental wellbeing overall. It is a brilliant way to forget the day’s stresses, whether you spend most of your time at home or at work it can can improve self-esteem and boost your mood. Feeling good about yourself is great for your productivity in all aspects of your life. It gives you confidence, energy and helps with motivation. That feeling that you can do just anything often starts with a kick and a step in the morning! There are many reasons why physical activity is good for your body – having a healthy heart and improving your joints and bones are just two as well as your mental health and wellbeing.
We need to change the way we view physical activity in order not to see it as something we ‘have to do’, ‘should do’ or ‘ought to do’ for our health, but as something that we do because we personally value its positive benefits to our wellbeing. Participating in face-to-face classes is a fab way to exercise with other people as well as making new friends.
What I love is catching up for a coffee, lunch, nights out and even our fitness weekend away.
