Movement & Mental Health Webinar

8 February @ 11:00 am 12:00 pm

There is evidence that regular movement helps to release hormones such as endorphins and serotonin which help lift your mood. It also helps promote dopamine and norepinephrine levels in the brain which helps to improve attention and focus. An increase in these hormones helps to reduce levels of cortisol, or stress hormones in the body. Join us to find out more.
