Does exercise help mental health?

Decrease Stress and Anxiety    Exercise helps mental health by lowering stress hormones and raising endorphins, both of which have a long-term effect on mood. Because of life transitions, seniors are more sensitive to chronic stress.


Interaction with Others  Exercise benefits both physical and emotional health and is a great opportunity to meet new people and reconnect with old ones. Gyms frequently offer senior-specific programmes, and group exercise sessions may be more enjoyable than solitary ones.


Consistency and Routine Seniors can feel more energised and motivated by establishing a daily or weekly routine, which also benefits their mental, physical, and cognitive health. Anybody can get daily exercise, which helps build a sense of routine and predictability, which is beneficial to overall health.


Improved Sleep Regular exercise is one of the best ways to improve sleep since it promotes a faster, deeper, and longer-lasting sleep cycle. If you or a senior loved one has recently experienced anxiety, despair, loneliness, or tension, exercise can assist.
