Introducing: Mind Race.

What happens to our mental state when we don’t exercise? ASICS embarked on a ground-breaking research project to find out.

What happens to our state of mind when we don’t exercise?

As well as pinpointing the mental effects of physical activity, the research also studied the mental impact of inactivity.

We monitored the state of mind of volunteers who agreed to pause their regular exercise routine for just one week.

The results show how essential exercise is to maintain positive mental wellbeing and how 15.09 minutes can make all the difference.

Just 15.09 minutes of exercise to uplift the mind.

Thanks to thousands of people who have participated in ASICS’ Uplifting Minds study, the data shows it could take only 15 minutes and 9 seconds of exercise to uplift the mind.

The findings are part of a live, global study, overseen by leading movement and mental health researcher Professor Brendon Stubbs.

Welcome to the town that moved to lift its mood.

Together with the support of mental health charity, Mind, we transformed the town of Retford into “Upliftford”. This unique experiment showed the power of movement to lift the mood of an entire town, with residents recording a mental uplift of 27%.
