4 Free Workouts to Change up Your Routine | Victoria Jiju
Fitness is phenomenally helpful not only for your mental health but also for your physical health. I personally am not the fittest at all and have only recently began my fitness journey (click here to see how I got into it). When we exercise, we increase our serotonin levels which is one of the hormones that affects mood. Therefore the more regularly we participate in healthy amounts of exercise, the more chance we will have of improving our mental health. Some research has even gone as far to say that exercising regularly can often be just as effective as some anti-depressant medication.
Knowing that lock down may cause my depression to rear it's ugly head, I began to regularly exercise to try minimize the chances of those dark thoughts creeping in. However, now being 10-12 weeks in, I've found myself getting bored of the same types of exercise. As a result I have listed 4 FREE workouts you can checkout to boost your physical and mental health in a variety of ways.
