Being Active and Mental Health
Research has found that being active has a powerful positive impact on mental health and wellbeing.
As a Clinical Psychologist I am a passionate advocate for the role of keeping active and exercising in supporting positive mental health, for helping with low mood, anxiety, stress, self esteem, thinking skills, and more.
I believe in supporting us to think about this aspect of our lives, if you would like to explore this, and in finding ways that work for you to help you move a little more.
I also want you to know that I don't believe that being active, moving a little more, or exercising is a magic wand. But I do believe when we inspire each other to move a little more, it can help, in small ways.
Looking after our health, our movement, our sleep, our eating habits, are all essential tools for our wellbeing.
