5 Ways Group Training may Improve your mental health

Did you know that regular physical activity has been linked to improved mental health? Approximately one million Australians experience depression every year, and a further two million deal with anxiety, as reported by Beyond Blue. The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare estimates that an additional 2.4 million Australians experience significant psychological suffering. Since mental health challenges are so prevalent and can cause us to feel overwhelmed, it's crucial to look into various methods in which we can support ourselves in maintaining an optimistic frame of mind.

Here are five ways that socialising and exercising in a group may help fight mental health illness:

  1. Exercise releases endorphins that uplift your mood.
  2. Connecting with others via involvement in a group has been shown to be an effective strategy for reducing loneliness and feelings of isolation.
  3. Engaging in an activity, which is both mentally and physically demanding, may help take your mind off your problems for a while. You may also have a new outlook on them post-activity due to the release of endorphins.
  4. The feeling of achievement and the joy that comes from sharing that success with someone else does wonders for our sense of self-esteem.
  5. Working out in a supportive group environment with a professional coach will increase our likelihood of rocking up, even on days when we don't feel like it. This builds self-discipline which can make you feel more in control of your life.
