Reducing Anxiety and Depression.

The slopes will help to free the mind by providing a complete change in environment. Exercise such as skiing reduces the chemicals released by your immune system that are some of the causes of depression. Your brain releases neurotransmitters and endorphins that will dampen depression symptoms.

Lifting your mood.

All exercise will lift your mood, but skiing provides a change of scenery and above all fresh air and sunshine. Being at one with nature and finding appreciation in the outdoors are all ways of feeling peace with the natural environment around you as well as within. Exercising in a natural setting brings greater feelings of revitalisation and increased energy. It provides the dual combination of aerobic activity and muscle building.

Thinking

The brain is exercised as well as the body due to the mental stimulation of the outdoor environment.

Improved Sleep

Working out at least three hours before bedtime will help to improve the quality of your sleep. A healthy night’s sleep, according to the National Sleep Foundation will help to regulate your mood, improve your memory and ability to learn as well as promote healthy weight and energy levels.
