Mental Health Awareness Month

Mental Health Awareness Month

The benefits of staying active

Mental health issues are not just something we are born with. The stresses of life can bring any of us to an unhealthy mental state if we are not aware of the signs and intentional about self care. Having a healthy mental state of mind takes effort and there are many ways you can minimize your risk. Exercise is one of them.

According to an article in the National Library of Medicine:

Exercise improves mental health by reducing anxiety, depression, and negative mood and by improving self-esteem and cognitive function. Exercise has also been found to alleviate symptoms such as low self-esteem and social withdrawal.  Thirty minutes of exercise of moderate intensity, such as brisk walking for 3 days a week, is sufficient for these health benefits. Moreover, these 30 minutes need not to be continuous; three 10-minute walks are believed to be as equally useful as one 30-minute walk.
Health benefits from regular exercise that should be emphasized and reinforced by every mental health professional to their patients include the following:

  1. Improved sleep
  2. Increased interest in sex
  3. Better endurance
  4. Stress relief
  5. Improvement in mood
  6. Increased energy and stamina
  7. Reduced tiredness that can increase mental alertness

Mental health service providers can thus provide effective, evidence-based physical activity interventions for individuals suffering from serious mental illness.
