At the start of the week Ballymena Today highlighted that this is Mental Health Awareness week. Their focus this year is to make a relationship resolution – if you are a new mum the Buggy workout would be a great place for you to forge some new relationships and get some exercise.

Exercise is really good for your physical and mental wellbeing. The Mental Health Awareness association have a great “How to ” guide which can tell you much more about the benefits of exercise.

What impact does physical activity have on wellbeing?

Physical activity has a huge potential to enhance our wellbeing. Even a short burst of 10 minutes’ brisk walking increases our mental alertness, energy and positive mood.

Participation in regular physical activity can increase our self-esteem and can reduce stress and anxiety. It also plays a role in preventing the development of mental health problems and in improving the quality of life of people experiencing mental health problems.
