We are designed to move.

We cannot think about taking care of our health (mental and physical) without thinking about practicing some type of physical activity.

At a metabolic level, physical activity is associated with the prevention of cardiovascular, respiratory and degenerative diseases, among others,

and...

at a mental level, we relate it to a better mood and lower levels of stress, anxiety, depression and ADHD.

Benefits of Practising Sports

Benefits of Practising Sports

  1. Practicing sports promotes several changes at the brain level, including the development of new neuronal cells, the reduction of inflammation, and the production of neurotransmitters, such as endorphins, and hormones such as dopamine or serotonin.
  2. Serotonin is known as the ‘happiness hormone’ because it promotes states of relaxation, self-esteem and concentration. One of the most direct ways to increase its levels in the blood is by moving the body!

We all know that exercise is good for us but getting to a point where we feel the benefits, rather than feeling like every workout has left us in need of a nap, takes consistency and perseverance.
