Benefits of Weight Lifting for Mental Health

 » Bill Reichle Therapy/Counseling

Weight lifting is beneficial for physical strength and muscle development and plays a significant role in improving mental health. Engaging in regular weight-lifting exercises can have a positive impact on various aspects of mental well-being. Firstly, weightlifting helps to reduce stress and anxiety levels. When you lift weight, your body releases endorphins, known as “feel-good” hormones. These endorphins act as natural mood elevators, promoting well-being and relaxation. As a result, weightlifting can help alleviate symptoms of stress and anxiety, leaving you feeling more calm and centered.
