We all know exercise is good for our bodies. However, most people don’t know exercise is good for their state of minds as well.
Research consistently reveals how exercise can make us feel happier, thereby relieving stress and alleviating minor depression.
Experts explain being active causes our bodies to release chemicals called endorphins. These chemicals act as natural antidepressants. They ease anxiety and can lift our spirits.
So, the next time you feel anxious or sad take a brisk walk, hop on a bike or take a swim. You have nothing to lose but the blues.
