One Workout Away from a Good Mood
Updated: Feb 7, 2020
To quote Elle Woods from Legally Blonde,
Exercise gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy. Happy people just don't shoot their husbands, they just don't.
Endorphins are chemicals produced in the body that mask pain and produce feelings of pleasure. Though a few things can trigger the release of these chemicals, exercise is one of the easiest ways to do so. Due to this factor, exercise has been linked to improved mood and may be key in the treatment of depression.
Take the time to get in a little movement each day. Even just standing and sitting at your desk can help improve your mood. While we always encourage you to meet with your trainer, try grabbing your friends for a walk, hike or bike ride to not only build your mood but also boost your community and connection.
Stay happy. Stay healthy!
