To keep our brains at peak performance, our bodies need to work hard. Exercise cues the building blocks of learning in the brain, it affects our mood, anxiety, and attention, and guards against stress.
We are all aware of the benefits of regular exercise for physical health and fitness, but we cannot underestimate the benefits it also has for our mental health and fitness.
One strategy that can assist individuals to increase their level of exercise and overall activity is Behavioural Activation. At Walters Green Clinical Psychology Practice, all of our clinicians offer Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) to target lifestyle factors (i.e., insufficient exercise; imbalanced routine) that can contribute to the development and maintenance of depression, anxiety, and poor stress management.
