Feeling lethargic, moody or unmotivated? Our suggestion is… EXERCISE!
It’s a great way to stay in shape whilst boosting your mental health (studies have shown that regular activity and exercise makes it 30% less likely that you will develop depression). Incorporating exercise into your daily routine is a great way of keeping you active.
Here are our top tips for staying active:
At the Students’ Union we know that it can sometimes be hard to incorporate exercise into your routine and that joining a sports team (social or competitive) can, for many, be an unrealistic expectation due to a busy lifestyle so here are two great walking or running routes that you can do within Sheffield! The City Centre Route will take you on a lap of Sheffield city centre, past some of the city’s well known sights such as Bramall Lane stadium, the cathedral and of course Sheffield Hallam University (City Campus). The Collegiate Route on the other hand will take you on a more scenic lap of Endcliffe Park at the bottom of Ecclesall Road (near Collegiate Campus). Both offer a great, easy way to fit excercise into your day even if you have busy schedule!
