Welcome to The Mood Lifter!
Everybody knows that physical activity is good for you. Exercise can help reduce the risk of diseases like diabetes, cancer and cardiovascular disease.
Research shows that regular exercisers have better mental health, emotional wellbeing and lower rates of mental illness.
For instance, a 2017 exA study published in the General Journal for Psychiatry has shown that 80% of participants receiving treatment in a mental health clinic reported an improvement in general mood and anxiety following physical exercise.
There is mounting evidence that suggests exercise is an effective treatment method for people suffering from acute and chronic mental illness, with some studies suggesting that exercise is just as effective, if not more effective than pharmacological intervention in alleviating depressive symptoms.
I have personally dealt with anxiety and depression and exercise is my meditation/medication.
