Event details and schedule
Walking Out Of Darkness – Mind, Body and Soul
Join CLASP Charity, other charities and organisation on World Mental Health Day at the Pure Gym’s in Edinburgh Ocean Terminal, Glasgow City, Manchester Urban Exchange, Manchester Exchange, Leeds North, Brierley Hill (Birmingham), Coventry, Mansfield, Portsmouth, Newton Abbey (Belfast), Acton and Finsbury Park (London) from 12noon to 4pm.
You don’t have to be a fitness fanatic to reap the benefits. No matter your age or fitness level, this enjoyable event will help to improve your emotional and mental health. Also, you can continue all the exercises after the event at home and work with family and friends to continue to improve your mental and physical wellbeing after the event.
We are confident, you will enjoy all the mild to moderate exercise routines on the day to help your needs and you can continue the experience at Home, Work, School or Pure Gym locations across the country to show the mental health benefits of exercise and improve your life by:
Easing stress and anxiety, reducing tension.
Yoga or a bike ride won’t sweep away all of life’s troubles, but exercising regularly helps you take charge of anxiety and reduce stress, anger, and frustration. Exercise can also serve as a distraction to your worries, allowing you to find some quiet time and break out of the cycle of negative thoughts that feed anxiety, depression, and other mental and emotional problems.
Lifting your mood and relieving depression.
Exercise releases endorphins, powerful chemicals in your brain that energize you and make you feel good. In fact, exercise can treat mild to moderate depression as effectively as antidepressant medication—but without the side-effects, of course. As well as relieving depression, research has shown that maintaining an exercise schedule can prevent you from relapsing.
The same endorphins that make you feel better also help you concentrate and feel mentally sharp for tasks at hand. Exercise also stimulates the growth of new brain cells and helps prevent age-related decline.
Regular activity is an investment in your mind, body, and soul. When it becomes habit, it can foster your sense of self-worth and make you feel strong and powerful. You’ll feel better about your appearance and, by meeting even small exercise goals, you’ll feel a sense of achievement.
Even short bursts of exercise in the morning or afternoon can help regulate your sleep patterns. If you prefer to exercise at night, relaxing exercises such as yoga or gentle stretching can help promote sleep.
Increasing your heart rate several times a week will give you more get-up-and-go. Start off with just a few minutes of exercise a day, and increase your workout as you feel more energized.
When faced with mental or emotional challenges in life, exercise can help you cope in a healthy way, instead of resorting to alcohol, drugs, or other negative behaviours that ultimately only make your symptoms worse. Regular exercise can also help boost your immune system and reduce the impact of stress.
You can fundraise at this event for ‘ANY’ UK Mental Health or Suicide Prevention Charity, but more importantly, you can empower yourself, inspire family and friends as well as demonstrate to millions across the country that mental illness does not define you as a person.
