Mental Health Awareness Week – Moving more for your mental health

This year’s theme focuses on the powerful impact of movement, not just in terms of physical activity, but also in fostering a positive shift in our mental health approach. 

Engaging in movement activities has been shown to have significant benefits for both our physical and mental health. By incorporating movement into our daily routines, we can enhance our overall well-being and promote a healthier mindset. 

Exercise has been shown to reduce stress, anxiety, and depression, while boosting our mood and overall sense of well-being.

There are lots of different exercises you can try!

For example:

  • Walking
  • Hula hooping
  • Swimming
  • Cycling
  • Gym
  • Dance classes
  • Running
  • Yoga
  • Skipping

Mental health is a journey that fluctuates between highs and lows, and it’s crucial to understand that it’s okay not to be okay. Amidst the challenges, there are numerous avenues to nurture our well-being. Engaging in physical activities like going for a walk or exercising not only benefits our bodies but also uplifts our mood and reduces stress.

Equally important is the power of connection; whether it’s talking to a friend, or family member, or seeking professional support, opening up about our struggles can really help.

Additionally, practicing mindfulness and relaxation techniques can help calm the mind and promote mental clarity.

Let’s take this opportunity to prioritise movement and embrace the positive impact it can have on our mental health.
