TIP OF THE WEEK Phil our gym instructor says: ‘Studies have shown that regular physical exercise can help reduce stress and symptoms of depression and anxiety, whilst improving your overall mental health. This is because exercise releases endorphins that help improve your mood. Something as little as 20minutes of light to moderate physical exercise per day can be enough for you to start to notice these amazing benefits.’ For more information on our facilities: goo.gl/1JztSn
