Why CrossFit is good for your mental health

Dec 16, 2019

We all know that exercise has physical benefits, but one of the things that is often overlooked is how exercise like CrossFit can help improve your mental health too.

Many studies have found that doing physical activity can actively improve mental health and wellbeing. Here’s how:

Better sleep

Working out is tough! For those who struggle sleeping, exercise is a good way to tire yourself out. It can also add routine to your day, again aiding better sleep.

Happier mood

Exercise like CrossFit releases feel-good hormones. It makes you feel better in yourself and also gives you more energy! 

Managing stress

CrossFit can help reduce stress, racing thoughts and anxiety. Doing something physical releases cortisol, a hormone that helps us manage stress. Exercise also gives your brain something to focus on, making it a positive strategy for dealing with difficulties. 

Better self-esteem

Getting active can improve your self esteem by making you feel better about yourself. Setting and meeting goals will also help this!

Connecting with people

Group or team activities like CrossFit help you meet new people, like minded people and make new friends, thus combatting loneliness.

Reduce the risk of depression

Studies show that doing regular exercise reduces the risk of experiencing a period of depression.
