Move for Your Mood

Our 8-week series offers insight and inspiration into the many ways physical activity can help improve mental wellness.

Get Moving

Physical activity is a key component of a healthy lifestyle, but regular movement—whether it’s dance, running, tennis, or yoga—can also have an immediate impact on your mental health and wellbeing.
All forms of exercise — from walking and jogging to yoga and weight lifting — can help reduce feelings of anxiety and stress. Plus, many forms of movement are free, accessible to all individuals, and doesn’t come with any unpleasant side effects (when done properly).

The health benefits of dancing are often overlooked, but the combination of simple movements and moderate pace makes it an accessible (and fun) form of physical activity for people of all ages and fitness levels.
As many of us spend more time indoors, a daily walk can be the perfect opportunity to get up from your chair and take in some fresh air. Although walking alone can benefit your physical health, strolling with a companion can boost your mood and overall wellbeing.
