It’s no secret that exercise boosts mental health – when you exercise, your body releases feel-good hormones such as endorphins. These help to lift your mood and make you feel good! Here are 5 mood-boosting exercises you can try out right now.

Dancing to your favourite song can instantly lift your mood- this is a great way to keep fit while having a bit of fun. You can do this with your friends or siblings to make it a little more exciting and a way to bond with your loved ones. We’ve even got the perfect songs that’ll get you up and moving- check them out here.

Yoga helps you manage stress and improves your mood. It’s all about getting

in touch with your body as every movement and breath is felt while releasing stress. If you are not too familiar with yoga, you can watch this video for a beginner’s guide.

Walking can help clear your mind, which in turn can lift your mood. Why not walk around your neighbourhood or take the stairs instead of the lift for an instant mood booster? Try walking when you’re feeling down or angry- you’ll feel so much better afterwards.

If you have a swimming pool, you can use it as a way to exercise while improving your mood. If you don’t have a swimming pool don’t worry, most gyms have one. The feeling of water gushing against your skin as your focus on every breath can help you feel relaxed and de-stressed.

Riding a bike is a good way to help you feel refreshed. Each movement helps you release feel-good hormones, leaving you energised and light – like you’ve lifted a huge weight off your shoulders.

Maintaining your mental health doesn’t have to be difficult- something as simple as 30 minutes of exercise a day can greatly improve your mental health and help you manage it. Don’t forget that your mental health needs as much care and attention as your physical health- everything works together to help you live your best life! What’s your fave mood-boosting exercise?
