Badminton and Mental Health
On World Mental Health Day, we don't want anybody to feel alone. Did you know that around 10 million adults will experience a mental health struggle each year? Did you also know that badminton is one of the best ways to reduce loneliness? For many, it quickly becomes a "second family."
As a sport goes, badminton is brilliant at:
✨ Increasing endorphins - all of those happy neurotransmitters start buzzing whilst you're on court!
✨ Giving you a good nights sleep and improving mood.
✨ Reducing your cortisol levels which reduces stress, anxiety and depression.
✨ Improving your concentration, along with your teamwork skills and spacial awareness.
✨ Engaging your brain in a positive way. Every time you choose how to serve, whether to net, kill or lift - you're improving your decision making skills on the spot!
✨ Boosting confidence levels through social interaction.
✨ Improving body positivity - look at all the amazing things your body can do!
Has badminton improved your world? We'd love to hear about it! Let us know here 😄
