One small change, many powerful benefits

People are going through a lot right now, mental health conditions and stress levels are through the roof, just ask any psychologist, doctor or hell, even your work colleague.  It’s never been more important to really check-in with yourself, your mate, and your family.  

Exercise has many benefits for DadsDads going through hard times

Dads, particularly those Dads who are going through a hard time right now with separation, it can be quite easy to retreat inwards, further isolate yourself and your mental health can decline pretty quickly.  One way to help pull you out is to establish a regular exercise routine. 

Yes, I know, I you’ve heard it all before, but remember, exercise has many benefits, such as stimulating chemicals in your brain that boost your mood. 

And a mood booster is just what a lot of people need right now.  Forgetting about the other benefits such as reducing the risk of illnesses like high blood pressure, cholesterol, diabetes, obesity and cancer (just to name a few); the mental health benefits alone are enormous.

How will exercise make you feel better

Better your mood

Not only does exercise release chemicals like endorphins and serotonin that improve your mood, it simply gets you out in the world, in the sunshine and helps to reduce feelings of loneliness and isolation, and get you connecting with other people, even if it’s just at the park with a wave or nod of the head as you go by. String a few exercise sessions together and it can reduce stress and other conditions like depression and anxiety, and importantly, aid in the road to recovery from serious mental health issues. Not to mention boost sleep quality, who doesn’t love a solid 8-9 hours! 

How much exercise do we really need  

Well, the Australian guidelines recommend at least 30 minutes a day of moderate to intense physical activity. I know it may sound like a lot, but it can be broken up over the course of the day.  The gyms are currently closed due to lockdown, but there are many ways to get your 30 minutes per day, you just have to be creative.
