We all know the benefits of regular exercise for our bodies – but how often have you stopped to think about the benefits for our minds too? Being “active” often means different things to different people, but we can all recognise how any form of exercise is great for both our physical and mental health.
Last weekend we shared Brian’s story (click here to read it) and learned about how getting active helped him mentally as well as physically.
So today, let’s talk about how you have kept yourself – body and mind – active throughout the years. Have you found something new that you enjoy? Is there an activity you have loved for many years? Share your thoughts, stories and comments below…
