We all know that physical activity is great for the body. A healthy heart and strong bones and joints are just a few of the benefits. But often less emphasised is the effect that exercise can have on mental health and wellbeing.
Even a short burst of 10 minutes of brisk walking increases our mental alertness, energy and positivity. Regular participation in physical activity can increase self-esteem, and can reduce stress and anxiety. It helps to prevent mental health problems from developing in the first place, but also can transform the quality of life for people already experiencing them.
At Active Leeds we have a vast amount of activities for you to take part in then will help you get physically and mentally healthy.
