A growing body of research supports that regularly incorporating exercise into your routine can have a positive impact on alleviating mild to moderate symptoms of anxiety, depression, and other mental health conditions. There are several psychological and social benefits associated with exercising regularly.

The euphoric feeling you may have experienced after exercise or moderate physical activity is triggered by the release of endorphins in your brain!
