Episode 14: Exercise and Mental Health

This week's episode started as a chat with our friend Claire about Exercise and Mental health. Claire is a recently qualified personal trainer – we discuss how she came to that decision and the effect that exercise has on mental health in general.

It's quite a long podcast but it's worth it, lots of great insights into physical training, Pregnancy, Post-Natal Depression, tiny squash racquets and underwater hockey.

Nope, I didn't know that was a thing either! 

I love how this episode flows into other connected topics; it highlights how broad the conversation needs to be if we're going to truly bring mental health issues to the fore. 

Here are the links to the topics we discussed:

The British Octopush Association


RCPsych Advice on MH and Exercise

A blog about MH and sport, particularly the benefits of Fitness training.

This is going to be the first of many episodes on the subject; I have one lined up for the next few weeks and it's something that I feel needs some real attention. It's certainly not a one-size-fits-all but that's the beauty of it – there's something for everyone.  

Enjoy! As ever, podcast@thinkinghabits.co.uk is the email for questions, comments and suggestions.
