    There are many studies which have shown that doing physical activity can improve mental health. For example, it can help with:

    • better sleep – by making you feel more tired at the end of the day
    • happier moods – physical activity releases feel-good hormones that make you feel better in yourself and give you more energy
    • managing stress, anxiety or intrusive and racing thoughts – doing something physical releases cortisol which helps us manage stress. Being physically active also gives your brain something to focus on and can be a positive coping strategy for difficult times
