It’s that time of the year, folks! Some New Years resolutions are still in motion and some are already in the past. However, it’s always a good day to start a new path to improve your mental wellness. Any stage of the mental health spectrum can be helped by increasing social support, leading a healthier lifestyle and taking time to care for yourself.
Most people exercise to fulfill goals of being healthy or losing weight, but what if you thought about exercise as a way to maintain better mental health? Getting adequate exercise will go a long way when facing stress or whatever curve ball life throws at you. Whether you kickbox your way to great health or walk for 20 minutes after work, do what makes you feel the best—both mentally and physically. Bring a friend along for support and entertainment! There’s no reason your exercise routine has to be bland!
