Can exercise make us happy?

 

CAN EXERCISE MAKE US HAPPY?

 

You bet your life it can.

 

Apart from the instant:
 “I am looking better,
I am feeling better and
I will live longer
” benefits, something else happens.

 

Whilst we exercise there are chemicals working away that cause us to have a feeling of well being.

 

To name a few I have read that Serotonin regulates our mood, appetite and libido and exercise will help our brains use serotonin more efficiently to help maintain that ‘happy feeling’ and/or by boosting our mood.  It helps to calm and relieve depression.

 

And there is also evidence that Dopamine makes us more talkative and excitable.   And if we want the gold rewards of Endorphins, then we will have to knuckle down and do some rigorous exercise. 

 

Exercise can and will alter natural chemicals in our bodies that will help us feel happy without even us even trying.

 

So while our chemicals are doing their thing, our mind is also at work.  It likes it when we exercise.  Suddenly we feel good about ourselves, worthy and energised. 

 

SO
 

IF WE ARE NOT EXERCISING

WHY ARE WE ARE NOT EXERCISING.

 

Ladies, we don’t have an excuse.  

 

When we give our body what it needs it flourishes and we reap all the rewards.

 

Now I like that!

 

Have a good work out now, and rake in all the benefits.

 

Cheers

Gigi
