EXERCISE PROGRAMME

Why Exercise

You don’t have to win every game to improve your mental health. The physical boost you receive from sport helps release endorphins in your brain, making you feel better emotionally. You may also sleep better at night, feeling more rested and alert the next day. When you’re under pressure at work or school, shooting hoops, doing ‘keepie ups’ or practising drills can help you focus your energy and de-stress.

Mental Health Benefits

Perfecting your shooting or improving your dribbling skills can give you a natural high. Sports do not just affect your physical health but have a positive effect on your mental health as well. The exercise you get from playing sports releases endorphins, or neurotransmitters in the brain that reduce pain and can induce a feeling of euphoria. This sensation, also known as a “runner’s high,” can help battle the symptoms of depression by providing the body with a natural, physical feeling of happiness
