Exercise Improves Mood




Many studies show that people who exercise regularly benefit with a positive boost in mood and lower rates of depression. When you exercise, your body releases chemicals called endorphins. Endorphins are defined as polypeptides made by the pituitary gland and central nervous system. Endorphins primarily help one deal with stress and reduce feelings of pain. The pleasure effect associated with endorphins is in part related to the increased dopamine production that occurs due to endorphin activity. Exercise often brings a feeling that many would describe as “euphoric’. The mood-boosting effects of exercise can be felt immediately after a workout.
