Exercise is proven to have numerous benefits for mental health by releasing endorphins also known as ‘feel-good’ chemicals in the brain. It can help to reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety, improve mood and enhance overall cognitive function, including memory and attention. Regular exercise can help improve the quality of sleep and make it easier to fall asleep.
Cycle Against Suicide events, either cycles or walks, all have a wellbeing function. Preparing to participate in our events can also have additional mental health benefits. Setting a goal, training and working towards our events can boost self- esteem and self-efficacy. Furthermore, as group activities, our events increase social connections and a sense of community, again evidence-based interventions to supporting one’s wellbeing.
Cycle Against Suicide will host its charity walk ‘Trek the Dolomites’ from 2nd to 9th September 2023. An UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Dolomites is a landscape of evergreen forests and flower-speckled meadows, punctuated by vast, dolomites-stone precipices. Our walks during our ‘Trek the Dolomites’ cut through some of the most heart stopping scenery. We invite you to join our Trek the Dolomites adventure
