Exercise is extremely beneficial. It has been proven to increase not only physical but mental health. When struggling with your mood exercise can reduce symptoms of both anxiety and depression. It also helps your brain to function more clearly helping prevent you being overwhelmed. Sometimes the reason you’re stressed is that you didn’t get enough sleep. People who exercise regularly report getting a better night’s sleep than those who don’t. It is recommended you exercise at least 1 hour a day minimum. So the next time you know you’re going to have a stressful week try to schedule an exercise regime to help you through it. The recommended time to get the most out of exercise is first thing in the morning. They say this because you can begin rested and start your day productively. I hope this was helpful to you!
