The many health benefits of exercise have been widely publicised over the last twenty years, and public awareness has soared due to the WHO physical activity guidelines. Research continues to mount regarding the breadth and depth of the positive health outcomes linked to regular movement, and particularly in the domain of mental health. In light of the rising incidence of depression, anxiety, buronout and stress, exercise can serve as an invaluable aid to support emotional regulation and cognitive function. In this training we explore the physiologcial adaptations and primary mechanisms that make exercise and movement such a central player in optimising wellbeing.
The session explores the mental health benefits of particular types of training, as well as the importance of reducing sedentary behaviour for optimal wellbeing.
- Understand the mind-body connection as it relates to the health continuum
- Discuss the current WHO exercise guidelines in the context of mental health
- Explore the impact of different exercise modalities on mental health
- Understand the impact of exercise on the stress response and building vagal tone
- Discuss basic behaviour change strategies to overcome barriers to moving more.
Any member who is interested in exploring how we can use exercise as a tool to support our mental health.
