Move More May

With the world outside of our houses slowly and steadily opening back up, there’s no better time to try and get yourself moving! May is national fitness month, and we here at Chapter have come up with our 30 Somethings in 30 Days to help us and you get active! We’ll be working through it ourselves and would love to have you on this journey with us.

How to get started?

Exercise can be daunting, especially if you rarely do it or are just getting back into it – so here’s our calendar for the month to get you kicked off!

But why should you exercise?

“Being active releases chemicals in your brain that make you feel good – boosting your self-esteem and helping you concentrate as well as sleep well and feel better.” – Mentalhealth.org

Science! There’s a ton of research into exercise and how daily activity can give your mental health a boost as well as keeping your body fit and healthy. It can also be a social thing, which can boost your brain even more, especially in these post-lockdown times!

Check out just a few of the benefits of regular physical activity:

  • Releases stress
  • Decreases symptoms of depression
  • Improves your learning abilities
  • Sharpens your memory
  • Protects your brain from ageing
  • Helps you sleep better
  • Improves energy levels
  • Boosts self-esteem
  • Increases creativity
  • Decreases cravings for unhealthy foods & substances

Believe in you as much as we do!

As mentioned, it can be daunting to get started, even if you exercise regularly. So, if you’re in need of motivation, keep your eyes peeled on our social media accounts for more posts throughout the month to keep us all moving more in may!

You can even pick your own 30 somethings to do as often as you like, and be sure to share it with us, we’re excited to cheer everyone all on!

Happy May and happy moving!
