Moving more for our Mental Health

Movement: Moving more for our Mental Health.

The benefits of movement on our mental health are significant. From improved mood, confidence, sleep, concentration and memory as well as a reduction in anxiety, stress and inflammation. 

It’s important to remember that even short bursts of activity are beneficial. As little as 15 minutes of movement a day has been shown to positively impact mental health.

The Keeping Well website has a dedicated page with more information about physical health offers and discounts accessible to NHS staff.

Find more information over about this year’s theme at the Mental Health Foundation.
