How exercising can keep you mentally fit!

Do you remember that time when you tried to imitate Usain Bolt to catch a bus or when you raced against your sibling to get to the remote first? Do you remember the grin that just did not seem to subside right after? That was not because of getting on the bus or snatching the remote. It was because of the endorphins rushing through your body. Endorphins are hormones secreted by the nervous system and pituitary gland that reduces the transmission of pain signals and produces a feeling of euphoria.

Even if you don’t exercise, you would have seen that sudden bursts of activity seems to put you in a good mood. Your mind or rather your mood has a direct connection to how you feel physically. When you are hungry or fatigued, you will be in a foul mood (Remember the Snickers ad featuring Urmila Matondkar and Rekha). When you are emotionally stressed, you tend to feel tired. The body and mind are intrinsically bonded.

Unlike physical fitness, mental fitness is harder to achieve because a lot of factors affect your mood that does not include your body. Stress from work, family and relationships tend to cause more mental distress than an unfit body. Even though the effect of such stressors cannot be completely removed, they can be managed. One sure fire way is to exercise.


5 Fun indoor games to bring your family together

You do everything in your power to help your children grow. From providing them the best education, enlisting them in sports academies to driving them to dance lessons, you leave no stone unturned to give them the very best. Your love manifests itself in countless ways that nurture your child towards becoming a better individual.

But an important aspect of their future is playtime. Research has shown that play is very important in enhancing the imagination and creativity of a child. According to Sergio Pellis, a researcher at the University of Lethbridge in Alberta, Canada, playtime is important in developing the executive centre of the brain in young children which helps in planning.

When you merge family time with playtime, your family gets to bond better. It gives you the opportunity to teach your children important life lesson while having fun. After all, it is as they say, “A family that plays together, stays together.” Family playtime ensures that the children feel nurtured and valued. Children who play with their parents tend to have closer relationships with them. They are also more forthcoming with the parents who they think are not just authoritative figures but close friends.


Invest in your first family home at Cityville

Bannerghatta Road is home to many people like Kumar who find that the plush localities around South Bangalore come very close to their place back home.
