WAYS EXERCISE MAKES YOU A HAPPIER PERSON
- Increased dopamine in the brain. Dopamine is a chemical in the brain that's associated with feelings of pleasure & happiness. And exercise is one of the best ways to increase your brain's dopamine production, giving you that much-needed mood improvement.
- Lowers anxiety & depression. Recent studies have shown that people who suffer from anxiety and depression can achieve long-term relief from exercising and its mood-boosting benefits.
- Energy booster. Ever have a really great workout, and then feel even more energized after you were done? That's because exercise is a wonderful energy booster, and more energy equals increased levels of happiness.
- Stress reducer. Stressed out? Exercise is a form of low-level-stress itself, and the more you subject yourself to the "stress" of working out, the better you body will adapt to handling other kinds of stress.
It is said that exercise is the best anti-depressant in the world but is sadly the most underutilized. Its wonder goes a long way, more than physical benefits or even weight loss. Remember, exercise won't necessarily help you to lose that weight but it will indeed help you get out of that 'gloomy' times and will help you think more clearly, helping you make better decisions even for your diet or food intake. It will help you choose the 'good' things.
