Mental Health week

It’s mental health awareness this week and this year the the theme is mental health and exercise. In one way or another we all struggle with our demons and that can range from be anxious, worried, and stressed to more serious problems. You don’t go through life without experiencing these problems but I have found exercise to really help  – helping me to clear my head, focus my mind and order my thoughts..even in difficult times. It’s been proven that exercise can actually reduce fatigue, make it easier to concentrate and improve brain function.   Exercise and other physical activity produce endorphins — chemicals in the brain that act as natural painkillers — and also improve the ability to sleep, which in turn reduces stress. As well as the above, exercise is very uplifting and there is always a sense of accomplishment after very workout that lifts you and makes you feel good about yourself and what you can achieve.Even after the toughest of my workouts!
