There are many reasons why physical activity is good for your body. Having a healthy heart and improving your joints and bones are just two.
But did you know that physical activity is also beneficial for your mental health and wellbeing?
Regular exercise helps stimulate the release of endorphins, which in turn increases mental alertness, energy and boosts our overall mood. It can increase our self-esteem and reduce stress and anxiety. It also plays a role in preventing the development of mental health problems and in improving the quality of life of people experiencing mental health problems.
In Villa Mégard we have discussed other ways to get active if you don’t fancy an exercise programme:
- Walk to School every morning
- Walk up and down the stairs
- Go for a walk
- Go for a walk when meeting your friends
Not only some of the girls are implementing new sporty habits for their individual projects but we are also preparing a dance challenge as a community project. Soon we will show some pictures, stay tuned!
