Fitness impact on student’s mental and physical health
Exams are coming and students are all over the place. Are you tired of being anxious, stressed, and all worked up? Well then a good way to feel better is to make your way to the gym and find time to de stress. You don’t have to do intense workouts, even just working out 4 times a week for at least 30 minutes to an hour a day is very beneficial. Working out can mentally make you feel better, because when you work out your brain releases endorphins which make you feel good. It is like a natural anti-depressant as well. Other mental benefits include;
- De stresses
- more disciple
- sleep better
It is important for students to make time and take care of themselves. School can be extra tough if students do not take care of themselves and make their health a priority. You will look and feel your best if you put in the work. A lot of students find it hard to balance their health, social life and academics, however, working out can be done in the gym and even at home. Many students also find it hard to get motivated to workout.
“ You can get motivated and get inspired by social media to workout but at the end of the day it is all on you if you want to make a change.” Said Ian Conway, a personal trainer from Fanshawe College.
Here are some easy workouts that you can do at your own house in 7 minutes
- Jumping jack
- Wall sit
- Ab crunch

- Side planks
At the end of the day your health is the most important and taking a moment to look after it, will benefit you greatly and you will perform better at school.
