We all know the power of physical activity to improve our mental health. Countless studies have shown that regular movement can help boost mood, improve sleep, and reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety. So why aren’t we moving more for our mental health?
In this bespoke workshop, created for Mental Health Awareness Week 2024, we’ll explore the potent power of movement and why exercise (in all it’s forms) can be the key to unlocking better mental health, happiness and wellbeing.
Created and delivered by a leading sports psychologist, leadership coach and Senior Lecturer in Sport and Performance Psychology, this 60 minute workshop will cover:
The physiological aspects of how exercise affects the brain.
The role of neurotransmitters like serotonin and endorphins in mood regulation.
Compelling research studies demonstrating the positive impact of physical activity on mental health.
The diversity of physical activities and how these can cater to various preferences and fitness levels.
The concept of ‘micro-workouts’ and how small bursts of activity can be beneficial.
