Exercise for mental health

In over 25 studies, there was one habit that increased happiness and boosted brain function. It can even increase life span by 5-7 years.

So what is the routine, sorry ladies’ it’s not shopping, but it can be just as fun. My favorite miracle cure is exercise, and all you need is 20 minutes a day, done at a moderate pace. If done vigorously the health benefits increase.

One significant benefit of exercise is it releases chemicals in the brain that not only protect it but prevent degeneration of the brain as we age. And done on a regular basis exercise can even alleviate anxiety.

So for a habit that can be a shape shifter and chase the blues away start exercising today.
