Our project is relatively simple in its design. We have created a space where activities designed to improve both physical and mental well-being take place under one roof. The activities include physical exercise, meditative sessions, skills for life and healthy living classes.
We know that there’s a strong link between physical health and mental health; by helping to improve our physical health we feel better about ourselves which provides us with a greater sense of self-worth but there are also biological reasons; It increases heart rate, which pumps more oxygen to the brain. It also aids the bodily release of a plethora of hormones, all of which participate in aiding and providing a nourishing environment for the growth of brain cells. Exercise is also one of the most effective ways to improve your mental health. Regular exercise can have a profoundly positive impact on depression, anxiety, ADHD, and more. It also relieves stress, improves memory, helps you sleep better, and boosts overall mood.
