Exercise doesn’t need time out of the day dedicated towards it in order for it to be effective; many people get their exercise from the daily commute to work by either walking or riding a bicycle to cut the journey down without sacrificing any health benefits. If you’re a regular driver, but your place of work is within walking or biking distance, then why not try using one of the alternative means as this will save money, help conserve the environment but most importantly, has benefits for both your physical and mental health and stability.
If you get into the habit of using a bike you may find the experience so enjoyable that you take it into other aspects of your life, for example on holiday visiting a bike favored place such as Amsterdam and riding your bike down the gorgeous streets could be just what you need.

As previously mentioned, it is very important that you not only retain your physical fitness but your mental health also; without taking the necessary steps to work on your mental well-being as well as your physical health, you could be letting this deteriorate without even realizing it. Doing exercise is a great way to boost your serotonin levels as well as giving you an activity that can be used to take your mind off of the things in life that are causing you stress.
If you are not sure where to start with ensuring you are mentally fit and healthy, I would recommend that you speak to a professional who will be able to help you with techniques and activities that can be done to encourage you to discuss your feelings and emotions.
