The mental health benefits of physical activity

It's a scientific fact that regular physical activity and exercise can make us healthier and happier.

When we're active, the body releases feel-good hormones that can improve our mood and boost our energy. Other benefits of exercise for mental health include:

  • boosting our self-esteem and confidence
  • increasing motivation and focus
  • reducing tension, anxiety, stress and mental fatigue
  • reducing loneliness by offering new ways to get together with family and friends and meet new people
