1. Exercise Releases Endorphins
When you exercise, your brain is known to release feel-good chemicals, or endorphins, which can help boost your mood and actually make you feel happy. By exercising when you feel down and starting yourself on a regular exercise program, you are giving your brain a way to release these chemicals that will give you a burst of happy feelings. Even as much as a simple walk can be enough to trigger your brain to release endorphins, so you don’t need to rush out to purchase pricey exercise equipment or join a gym! A simple thirty-minute walk per day has been shown to be plenty to get desired results.
