Benefits of our Active Lifestyles programme
- Be happy! Exercise decreases the stress hormones and increases endorphins, therefore exercise makes you happy.
- Think better! It's a good workout for the brain as it increases the blood and oxygen flow to the brain and the chemicals that help cognition.
- Gain confidence! Exercise helps you feel better about yourself and reduce stress – very useful around exam time.
- Get healthy! It helps to maintain a healthy weight in combination with a balanced diet.
