It helps bring more balance to my life and I am diagnosed with schizophrenia/bipolar. I can personally say that exercise greatly affects the mind.Is it true that exercising helps keep mentally balanced as well as physically?
I've read in some places that part of the problem with modern society is that we're too sedentary and do not get the amount of exercise that we're meant too; thus causing all sorts of ailments and in general making people just not feel as well I guess.
I've read that it helps keeps the chemicals in your brain properly balanced too, like serotonin, dopamine and stuff.
I know endorphins is a a real one, but is the rest true? it makes sense but I dunno. I never really hear anyone talking about it or very much empirical evidence supporting it being shown or whatever. It's usually just about endorphins and how great endorphins are.
