    New Year, New You

    By MDX Student Writer, Iolanda Brazza

    For anyone wishing to work on self-improvement this New Year - Student Writer Iolanda has just the guide you need.

    New Year, New You!

    We’ve all heard it before: the “new year, new me” cliché. Every January is the same - filled with new fad diets and exercise plans that fizzle out into chocolate bars by March.

    But what if we actually stopped making excuses and turned this cliché into a reality?

    Did you know that regular exercise not only has a huge impact on your physical health, but also on your mental health?

    Physical Health Benefits:

    • Exercising regularly can boost your immune system so you’ll get ill less often!
    • Daily Exercise boosts your overall energy levels! So put down that energy drink and jump on that treadmill!

    Mental Health Benefits:

    • Cardiovascular exercise helps create new brain cells: boosting concentration levels, improving memory and improving overall brain activity!
    • Exercising increases the release of endorphins in your body which makes you feel happy and improves productivity!

    Regular exercise helps to clear your mind and makes you feel more relaxed – enabling you to get a better night’s sleep
