Exercise: Positive Outlook, Intellectual Stimulation and Overall Good Health

Tagged: Activity

Amazing as it might seem, physical exercise affects more than just our bodies. It also helps our minds.

Our body's organs are intricately interrelated. Everything inside us influences everything else. The state of our lungs determines the condition of our hearts. Our stomachs affect our intestines.  

Beyond that, our bodies can sway our minds. Perhaps you've heard about how our mental outlook or our level of stress can impact our physical health. Well, that's a two-way street. Mind affects body.

But body also affects mind. And regular exercise can improve the overall attitude of our minds. In fact, exercise has a variety of psychological effects that enhance physical health. 

It buffers against stress, is an effective treatment for anxiety, and according to some researchers, is as effective as psychotherapy in treating mild depression.

The mind and body are inextricably linked to each other.
