With exams soon approaching Campus Sport has a few tips for you to consider and take on board to keep you relaxed and less stressed…
Exercise is frequently known as a ‘miracle cure’ due to the following reasons:
- Having trouble sleeping? Take part in the Campus Sport programme because, by increasing your physical activity levels you can boost your serotonin, a relaxing hormone which can help you get a good night’s sleep. Something that you need to help you focus right?
- Getting a refreshing night’s sleep helps us to think clearer and puts us in a much better mood to deal with what the day has in store. When we exercise, we raise our body’s core temperature and as it cools down over a few hours, the body receives a signal telling it that it’s time to sleep.
- Because I’m happy! When we exercise, ‘happy hormones’ are released into our blood stream which help us de-stress by lowering anxiety levels.
- Fact: People who exercise regularly have up to 30% lower risk of suffering from depression. Did you know that one in four of us in the UK experience episodes of anxiety or depression each year? The cure is… exercise!
We release that exams are stressful, so take a minute out, have some ‘you’ time and get a work-out or sports session in your schedule with Campus Sport. Then you can socialise and be active, helping you on the points highlighted above.

So, the next time you’ve had a stressful day, instead of digging your head in the sand or hiding away from it – why not consider an exercise fix to help you unwind and de-stress, especially around the exam period!
