Exercise is not always about aerobic capacity and muscle gain, or how fast we can run a 5k or how heavy we can squat. Of course it will help improve your physical health but it also helps your phycological health. When we exercise our body releases chemicals called endorphins. These are known as serotonin and dopamine, and these are our ‘happy/feel good hormones’. This can help improve your mood, energy levels, sleep, make you feel more relaxed and improve self confidence.
