Exercise and mood
We all know it physically feels good to exercise. But did you know that one of the most beneficial aspects of movement is how it improves how you feel mentally? When a person exercises it not only improves many physical traits, but it improves cognitive functioning, improves mood, helps stimulate healthy insulin response and can help build confidence.
The phycological benefits are immense. The release of Dopamine, Norepenephirine, Oxytocin (the love hormone) and reduction in immune system inflammation combine to make an exceptional combination of physical and mental well being. When you are down, one of the best things you can do is get some movement. It may not seem like first thing you want to do, but once you get moving and the feel good brain chemicals get released, you will immediately feel the positive difference. So next time you feel down - do yourself (and your loved ones) a favor and exercise!
