As we have seen already, change is inevitable. It comes along in many guises, and can cause stress and anxiety. So as well as accepting that it is a part of life, you need to establish ways to cope with change and the effects it has on you. One way of doing this is through regular exercise.
Most people are aware of the many physical benefits of exercise, but don’t realise that it is great at helping with mental health.
