Exercise is used by mental health professionals as a treatment for mild depression.
You don’t have to be depressed to get benefit from exercise. Exercise increases your circulation, sending oxygenated and nutrient laden blood to all parts of the body, including the brain. It burns off the hormones of stress and replaces those hormones with ones that make you feel good. You’ll build energy levels, which can make every movement easier and leave you feeling full of life at the end of the day, instead of wiped out and exhausted.
Healthy eating can also improve your overall mood.
Personal trainers study how food affects your health and your mood. In fact, several studies show that it plays a big role. One study of a violent prison found that by increasing the Omega-3 fatty acids and reducing the Omega-6, dramatically reduced the violence. Blood sugar levels fluctuation can take a toll on your mood too. A diet lower in added sugar can make a huge difference in that problem. Eating healthy can also help you lose excess weight and that can change how you feel about yourself.
Diet, exercise and other healthy lifestyle changes can add up to feeling good about yourself.

Trainers encourage adequate sleep. Exercise can improve the quality of sleep and the amount you get.
