Get Active

A tool that is proven to provide numerous physical and mental health benefits that we recommend to anyone is exercise. Whether you are having a great day, experiencing a simply stressful day, or dealing with recurring symptoms of depression, is exercise. Getting regular exercise is essential for good physical and mental health. Exercise can help stimulate parts of your brain that are not as responsive when you are feeling depressed. Exercise can be a positive distraction when dealing with a problematic issue or help to improve your confidence in a healthy way. Another reason why we at IndiGrowth feel that exercise is essential is that it improves brain chemistry.

Improving Your Mental Health by Being Physically Active

Exercise helps to release endorphins and other neurotransmitters such as dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin. All of these chemicals play an essential part in regulating your mood.

Raising your Serotonin levels boosts your mood and overall sense of wellbeing. It can also improve your appetite and help improve sleep cycles known to be negatively affected by depression.

Human Connection

Humans do not thrive in situations where they are isolated. Social interaction while participating in physical activity has numerous mood-boosting benefits. For example, going for a walk in the park with a friend will release serotonin, doing yoga with a partner will release higher levels of dopamine and serotonin than when practicing on your own. It is important to be mindful of the potential increased risks that may occur from interacting with others if you are battling any viral or bacterial infection and we encourage everyone to be aware of possible symptoms prior to engaging in physical activities with others.
