Although it will be tempting to spend all day on social media or watching television, exercise is still a key component of mental wellness. Find time each day, ideally 30-minutes, where you can get your heart rate up and increase the blood flow to your brain. This has the effect of providing more oxygen to your brain, which will help with concentration, memory, and mental acuity, all of which are needed when people are facing challenges.
Get active! It’s easy to fall into a rut of spending all day on electronics with most summer events and activities cancelled. But, exercise is a key component of mental wellness. Find 30 minutes each day, to get active. Take a walk, work out, or go for a hike. You will feel better and your body will thank you.
