A man’s mental health is priceless. Once lost, it’s difficult to make good decisions.

Fortunately for you, here comes the good news — healthy movements and exercise can help you to improve your mental health. This means that you can use exercise and movement patterns to relieve your depression, anxiety, and other mental health conditions.

 Sounds great, isn’t it? Now let’s get into how it works.

Breaking Down the Barriers to Mental Health

In your quest to use exercise to transition from poor mental health into a positive state, you must first break the barriers that are holding you back from exercising.

Your inability to do so will keep on restraining you from discovering the happiness you so much desire.

Look around yourself and identify all the obstacles you can see. A healthy mind lives in a healthy body. Therefore, do not let little obstacles hold you back from exercising.

The question is how do you stay motivated to overcome all the barriers to your workout goals?

Try to believe that it’s not that difficult to do so.  Be guided by the following motivational messages.

  •   Believe in your ability to learn. Never think you’re not great at exercising.
  •   Say no to little excuses. It’s only lazy people who give lame excuses every single time. An example is saying something like, “I’m too tired to train.”
  •   Don’t fear the pain. If you do the right exercises, it shouldn’t be too painful.
  •   Last but not least, never give up. There is always light at the end of the tunnel.

Winners never quit. Quitters never win.

Think about the rewards you stand to gain, instead of the short-term pain you may go through.

Examples of Healthy Movements and Exercise Routines

You were probably thinking that the healthy movements we are talking about are too tedious for you.

You may be surprised to learn that they are simple everyday activities that you can comfortably do without any pain.

Here are some exercises and movement patterns for mental health:

  •   Aerobic exercises
  •   Cycling (riding a bike)
  •   Dancing to music
  •   Swimming
  •   Yoga classes
  •   Walking

As listed above, these exercises and movements lie within your comfort zone. You’re going to have fun performing them.

For instance, walking, cycling, and dancing are simple activities that can be done by yourself, even with little to no guidance from instructors.

As for yoga classes and aerobic exercises, you may want to consult an expert trainer to take you through the routines.

Here are the important benefits of healthy movements and exercises for mental health:

Expand Your Brain Size

This sounds like a surprising fact. But fortunately, it has some truth to it. If you combine healthy movements with good exercises, you improve the structure of your brain as well its size.

But, of what use is a big brain? You ask.

Maybe you won’t be the next Albert Einstein, but a bigger brain would surely favour your thinking abilities.

Workouts and healthy movements are known to increase the volume of the brain areas that are related to improved learning and critical thinking.

Aids Memory

Being physically active is great for blood circulation (the supply of oxygen through your body and brain).

Once your brain gets an adequate supply of oxygen, it boosts your cognitive functions and temperament.

Researchers have theorized that doing some workouts and healthy movements at least 2 times a week, can reduce memory loss related to ageing.

Gives You a Good Sleep

Bad sleeping patterns can hamper your mental health. On the other hand, good exercises with healthy movements can boost your cognitive health.

You should never take the quality and quantity of your sleep for granted.

Step out for a walk, visit the gym, or go for a swimming session at least 2 times a week. You will soon enjoy a better night’s sleep.

Reduces Depression and Anxiety

These negative mental states are very unhealthy.

On the contrary, exercises and movement feed positive energy to the brain.

It’s known that yoga and other intensive exercises help to stimulate a neurotransmitter known as GABA. This also controls how your body responds to depression and other stressful conditions.


With regard to mental health, there are several benefits of training and movements. Apart from the points listed above, your confidence levels, and the general mood will only improve if you start exercising.

Exceptional Attack Protection Proven in Rigorous MITRE Engenuity ATT&CK® Evaluations

Trend Micro’s flagship threat detection and response platform proves its advantages in sophisticated simulations


HONG KONG SAR - Media OutReach - 21 April 2021 - Trend Micro Incorporated (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704), a global cybersecurity leader, excelled in the latest ATT&CK Evaluation performed by MITRE Engenuity. The Trend Micro Vision OneTM platform quickly detected 96% of attack steps from the simulation that mimicked the behavior of two infamous APT groups.

Unlike other industry organizations that test a product's ability to detect and prevent various malware samples, MITRE Engenuity's ATT&CK Evaluations appraise a solutions' ability to detect targeted attacks leveraging known adversary behavior. This approach more closely mirrors real-world attacks that are most critical. MITRE Engenuity focused on techniques associated with notorious threat groups Carbanak and FIN7 in this year's simulations.

Click here to read the full MITRE Engenuity ATT&CK Evaluation for Trend Micro Vision One:

"Security has been about spotting the tools used in an attack: MITRE Engenuity adds the dimension of recognizing rather the patterns of an attacker, no matter when different tools are used," said Greg Young, vice president of cybersecurity for Trend Micro. "MITRE ATT&CK is, like the attacks it models, complex. Doing well on a third-party test like this is satisfying – and with 96% visibility, we did very well here – especially considering it models techniques used by two of the world's most capable threat groups. An even bigger success is helping educate organizations that ATT&CK isn't just about the test but that ATT&CK can be a part of the everyday playbook for SOCs, which is reflected in our solutions."

This year's test included two simulated breaches, one at a hotel and one at a bank, using typical APT tactics such as elevation of privileges, credential theft, lateral movement and data exfiltration.

Trend Micro Vision One recorded the following impressive results:

  • Delivered 96% of attack coverage to provide visibility of 167 out of 174 simulated steps across the evaluations. This broad visibility allows customers to have a clear picture of the attack and respond faster.
  • 100% of attacks against the Linux host were detected, capturing 14/14 attacker steps, which is especially important considering its huge increase in use by many organizations.
  • 139 pieces of telemetry were enriched by the Trend Micro Vision One platform to provide extremely effective threat visibility to better understand and investigate attacks. This is critical for SOC analysts.
  • 90% of attack simulations were prevented through automated detection and response very early on in each test. Deflecting risk early on frees up investigation resources, allowing teams to focus on the harder security problems to solve.

Trend Micro Vision One allows customers to see more and respond faster — collecting and automatically correlating telemetry across email, endpoints, servers, cloud workloads and networks to speed up detections and investigations.

Its performance against techniques used by two of the world's most formidable cybercrime enterprises proves its value in threat detection and response, and ability to optimize cyber-risk reduction for customers.

The MITRE ATT&CK framework helps industry define and standardize how to describe cyber-attack techniques — offering organizations a common and regularly updated language to triage detection and response as efficiently as possible.

This year's strong performance in MITRE Engenuity's ATT&CK Evaluation is the second in a row for Trend Micro, whose capabilities also impressed in the 2020 tests.
