Exercise a crucial tool for managing your mental health

The benefits of exercise extend well beyond improving your physical health providing enormous advantages for your mental health. Exercise stimulates chemicals in your brain that improve your mood and the parts of the brain responsible for memory and learning.

Mental health benefits of exercise

Exercise can make you feel better, even if you’re already feeling okay.

It can reduce the risk of illnesses like heart and lung disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, cancer, dementia, Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson's disease.

Exercise makes you feel good because it releases chemicals like endorphins and serotonin that improve your mood. It can also get you out in the world with multiple scientific evidence supporting the health benefits of grounding yourself in nature. Exercising with others also helps to tackle feelings of loneliness and isolation, and reconnects you with your community.

If you exercise regularly, it can reduce your stress and symptoms of mental health conditions like depression and anxiety, and help with recovery from mental health issues.

Exercise and the mind

Exercise pumps blood to the brain, which should make you think more clearly..

It increases the size of the hippocampus, the part of the brain responsible for memory.

It also increases the connections between the nerve cells in the brain. This improves your memory and helps protect your brain against injury and disease.

How much exercise do you need?

Australian Government guidelines recommend adults do at least 30 minutes of moderate to intensive physical activity on most or all days of the week. You can make up 30 minutes over the day by combining shorter 10–15 minute sessions and the MyDNA tests and reports available at Calanna can provide you with videos on the types of exercise that are best sorted to your genetic makeup.

If you combine your exercise routine with a healthy diet it will boost your motivation and energy for exercise.

To find out which exercises and foods are best for your DNA #askcalanna. We offer simple DNA tests and reports to give you a customised and guided plan for meals and exercise routines that will work best for your body type and genetic makeup.
