Whether it’s joining a football club, netball team, doing street-dance, doing swimming lessons, doing one of our 7 Minute Mornings workouts or just running around the park or the playground, there are more benefits to exercise than you might realise.
- It helps make our bodies physically fitter, stronger and healthier – it can even help us avoid getting ill now and in the future.
- But did you know exercise can also increase our overall happiness, improve our mood and make us feel more relaxed? It is basically like a 'happy pill' for your body and brain!
- Physical activity releases chemicals in our brains and bodies which help us deal with stress and reduce anxious feelings and help with our mental health.
- It can even boost our brain power and help our ability to concentrate on things like school work, on our learning and homework!
So - how do I do it?
