Exercises uplift our mood by decreasing anxiety, depression and stress. It creates positivity in our mind and lowers the feeling of pain. Those people who suffer from anxiety, regular exercise has been shown to reduce their symptoms. Exercise provide a powerful impact on our mood and even doing it for a short period of time makes a difference. So we should exercise regularly to boost our mood and fight stress and anxiety.

Thus exercises are very much beneficial for our health. I also go for swimming classes on the weekends. It gives me lots of fun as well as helps me to be healthy. Dancing is another physical activity which I love to do. I love to go for dancing and swimming as I get to make many friends there too. Mommy always tells me that before starting any new exercise, we should always visit the doctor for a check-up and take his advice to know that we are fit to do the exercises.
