As we wrap up the month of May and Mental Health Awareness month, I am sharing an article I sent out about a year ago on weightlifting and the effects it can have on our mental health.
I would share a different, better article if there was one.
It is interesting that there are not more articles and recent research studies done on strength training and mental health.
I know from talking with clients who struggle with depression and anxiety that they always feel better after a workout. They smile more. They have more energy. They feel more accomplished than when they first got started.
Whether you suffer from depression, anxiety, or want to learn about another reason why we should be lifting heavy things, this article is a quick solid read.
Feel free to pass it on to anyone else you think would benefit from reading it.
