The benefits that exercise can have on your mental health

Em Batger
October is mental health awareness month. In Australia 1 in 5 people aged 16-85 have experienced a mental health disorder in the past 12 months. These are quite confronting statistics. Regardless of whether you have a lived experience of mental health or not such events can provide an opportunity to pause and take check of your mental head space and that of those around you. For me, exercise is the single most important thing I do for my mental health every day. Why? While most of us know the physical benefits, it may surprise you to learn that what motivates many people to engage in exercise is what it can do for your mental health.
