Both physical and mental health has always been so important to me. It’s not just the physical we have to look after, but our mindset, values and the way we perceive ourselves.
It took me a lot of self-reflection before I found a way I could cater to both of those at the same time; which was the gym. It’s not for everyone, but it’s the way that I look after myself. After a long day of university, or work, it’s the way I can destress and put the day behind me. Especially for those of us who have busy lives, we can forget that we need an hour or two completely to ourselves – to reset.
And I think in looking after ourselves, this is so important in ensuring we are the happiest and healthiest we can be.
