The physical benefits of exercise are well known: increased fitness levels and bone density; reduction in likelihood of strokes and heart attacks; increased muscle tone and stability (to name a few). But how does exercise impact on your mood?

In a nutshell, exercise, can and does boost you mood. In addition, this wondrous activity can also have a positive impact on stress, self-esteem as well has helping to combat anxiety and depression1.

Exercise is frankly a good habit to get into. It doesn’t mean you have to run marathons (although of course you can), exercise can be as simple as a spot of gardening or walking the dog. According to Mind, as your body adapts to increased activity levels you get a natural energy boost, which can make you feel less tired2.

And if you’re struggling for motivation, just remember how good you feel after you’ve exercised and go for it!
