BITESIZE | How 10 Minutes of Exercise a Day Can Improve Mental Health | Dr Brendon Stubbs

by Dr. Rangan Chatterjee   /  March 19, 2021

We all know that exercise is good for our physical health, but exercise can be just as powerful for our mental health.

Feel Better Live More Bitesize is my new weekly podcast for your mind, body and heart.  Each week I’ll be featuring inspirational stories and practical tips from some of my former guests.

Today’s clip is from episode 97 of the podcast with clinical-academic physiotherapist, Brendon Stubbs

His work is helping to provide much needed evidence of what we know instinctively – physical activity makes us feel good.

In this clip he explains why movement is not just good for our body, but also for our mind and why you don’t need to exercise for hours to feel the benefits.  Just 10 minutes of light exercise a day can result in meaningful changes happening within your brain.
