Psychological benefits of exercising

Getting more exercise has undisputed health benefits. It is what many of us need. Experts also say that it makes you feel better. Why don’t more people get into the habit then?

In my experience, exercise does have a positive effect on mood – but not immediately. While exercising, anxiety, stress and frustration are felt even more acutely. That’s why, in my opinion, many people stay away from exercise. We don’t want to be brought face-to-face with unpleasant feelings.

However, to reap the benefits of a more relaxed mind, that’s exactly what we need to do. No pain, no gain. Good luck with the struggle!
