Not only can exercise make you look good, it is also a great way to boost your mental health. From reducing stress, to improving self-confidence, exercising is a sure way to enhance who you are mentally and emotionally.

Exercise helps produce the chemical responsible for moderating the brain’s response to stress. It has been clinically proven to alleviate feelings of depression. Exercise releases endorphins, which create feelings of happiness and euphoria.

If you’re frustrated, depressed, or trying to calm your mental state, exercise! Go for a nature walk, jog on the treadmill, take a group fitness class, ride a bike. You might be surprised to find that getting active is the only medicine you need.

A nice body shouldn’t be your only motivation to exercise, do it for your mind, do it for a better mood, and do it to improve your interactions and relationships with others.
