Cycling raises your heart rate and gets the blood pumping round your body, and it burns calories, limiting the chance of your being overweight. As a result, it's among a selection of forms of exercise recommended by the NHS as being healthy ways to cut your risk of developing major illnesses such as heart disease and cancer.
Cycling is good exercise and it's easy to fit into the daily routine. If more people took it up, it could help ward off the health crises facing the NHS. Cycling here at Lofthouse is also cheap and easy at £12 for 3 hrs and just a text or call to 07816 881101 0r 07815 888909
Aerobic exercises – including cycling – have been proven to reduce anxiety and depression. Exercise improves your mood because it has several significant impacts on your brain.
When you exercise and your heart rate increases, more oxygen is pumped to your brain which has been shown to help manage anxiety and depression.
Endorphins and other mood-enhancing chemicals such as serotonin and dopamine are also released which all help to make us feel more positive.
Research suggests these improvements may have longer lasting effects too. Regular exercise can actually generate new neurons (cells that transmit information to the nervous system) in the brain which can lead to enhanced memory, improved mood and cognitive function, and learning capabilities.
