You’re only one workout away from a good mood! It’s fairly common knowledge that exercise has incredibly positive effects on the body, but exercise can also improve mental health.
It takes only 10 to 30 minutes into cardiovascular exercise or strength training to release endorphins, which helps to reduce stress, and relieve symptoms relating to anxiety, depression, tension, fatigue and anger, while also improving vigor & self-esteem. The release of endorphins also helps to reduce pain (including chronic pain) & enhance the immune system. Having workout partners or joining a group exercise class gives you the added bonus of socializing with people who share your interests and common weight loss & fitness goals. Continued exercise will also help to delay the effects of aging. Having a regular workout routine is much like having your very own fountain of youth! After your workouts you experience a sense of euphoria and a higher level of energy. You will also likely sleep better after a good workout, feel more energetic the next day and find yourself in a better mood.
So come on, what are you waiting for let’s get moving!
