Being fit and active has many benefits. A workout gives you energy, helps reduce overall body fat, raises your heart rate, and increases endorphins! It’s obvious that exercise has a myriad of benefits, one of them being stronger muscles. But being healthy physically doesn’t mean we should neglect ourselves mentally. Mental strength and fitness goes a long way in overall health.
Mental fitness is as simple if you follow these simple practices. Make time to read articles online, read a chapter of a book, listen to a podcast, do something creative, have a discussion about politics with a friend, ANYTHING. Being mentally active helps us engage with others and be alert for the long-term. Do you try any of these practices daily?
