It’s Mental Health Awareness week and we want to raise awareness on how Electric Bikes can have many positive impacts on your mental health.
Here are 5 mental benefits of riding an e-bike…
Cycling can encourage you to get out with friends and family more, join a club or community. It’s a great way to socialise, whilst also keeping you fit and healthy. Having company can also motivate you more and increase your mood.
Increased self esteem
Exercise increases your self-esteem and helps you feel more positive. Electric Bikes are an ideal way of exercising as you can choose the difficulty of your journey through the handy pedal assist. This makes it a hugely accessible form of exercise to those who feel overwhelmed by traditional cycling and caters to all ages and people who are dealing with physical disabilities. Due to this, it can give many people a sense of independence by offering a fun and healthy way to stay active without putting unnecessary strain on the body.
Being out on your electric bike is a great way to take your mind off things and relax, it provides you with an enormous sense of freedom and enjoyment. You’ll find you have little time to have negative thoughts as you’ll be focused on your journey instead and even just getting outdoors with nature can have huge benefits for your mind. It will help your mind be more present and disrupt any negative thoughts you may be having.
Anxiety & Stress
Cycling can help reduce your feelings of anxiety, it reduces tension in your body and can help you regulate your breathing. You will also increase your endorphins when you cycle, even if you’re using the highest level of pedal assist! Even short bursts of exercise daily can improve your mood significantly.
Incorporating some exercise into your daily routine can work wonders for your productivity. Cardiovascular exercise such as riding your e-bike will help you reduce fatigue and will keep your glucose, blood levels and oxygen high. In turn, this will keep you focused and get you in the right mindset to work.
