Exercise & Mental Health


Mental health is a significant contributor to disability and Australia has seen a rise in the prevalence of mental illnesses such as depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder.

Exercise and Your Mental Health

More academic research and studies are showing that there is a strong connection between mental and physical health. 

Because of this the health experts at Kieser understand it is important to focus on holistic and multidisciplinary treatments to improve quality of life for those with mental health conditions. There have been large bodies of evidence demonstrating the positive effect that physical activity can have on mental health and exercise has been shown to effectively manage and reduce some mental health disorders.

Furthermore, regular and habitual exercise can prevent the onset of some disorders by providing benefits including overall happiness and wellbeing, as well as confidence and self-esteem.

The Australian Government health experts provide a lot of information about exercice and the roll it plays in mental health via their Health Direct website

They'll tell you "Exercise makes you feel good because it releases chemicals like endorphins and serotonin that improve your mood. It can also get you out in the world, help to reduce any feelings of loneliness and isolation, and put you in touch with other people." -Health Direct
