It’s long been recognized that physical exercise is also beneficial for a person’s mental well-being – and now two researchers at the U of R are looking into some of the specific benefits that exercise may have on mental health. “Regular exercise has tremendous benefits for both our physical and mental health. However, despite being aware of these benefits, our population is largely inactive. We need effective exercise strategies for improving mental well-being that people can and will actually do on their own,” explains Julia Mason, a second-year master’s student in clinical psychology.
