One part of exercising that isn’t talked about enough is how it improves your mental health.  Exercise plays a huge role in your sense of well-being.  You tend to have more energy and feel more relaxed with a positive attitude.  Doctors are even prescribing physical activity to ward off depression and anxiety.  In additional to mental health benefits, your risk of cardiovascular disease and diabetes is lowered as well.  You don’t have to spend countless hours in the gym every day to do it either.

So how does exercise do so many great things for your body?  Exercise releases endorphins in the brain.  Doing physical activity helps to relax muscles and tension in the body. So not only does it put your mind at ease, it also puts your body at ease.
