Exercise and happiness!! How are they related ?
Shobith K Menon
Are you working out just for losing or gaining weight ? Treat exercise as “Fun time” and give your brain a needed break from negative thoughts , your deadlines at office or any other mental worries . Working out requires you to be fully present in the here and now, so you won’t have to time to think about any negative things . 🧠 Hormones such as endorphins, serotonin, dopamine are released in response to increased physical activity. 🧠 Endorphins give you that post-exercise amazing and fresh feeling. As your body’s natural painkillers, they reduce discomfort, enhance pleasure and improve self-esteem. 🧠 Serotonin controls your appetite, helps you sleep sounder, and regulates your mood. These factors all go hand-in-hand to make us feel happier, calmer, and more stable. 🧠 Dopamine is that pleasurable habit forming hormone that keeps you coming back for more. It signals the reward and pleasure centers in our brain 🧠,which helps us to motivate to take action and work towards things that makes us feel good and better . I would say in other terms that FITNESS IS HAPPINESS!! 😀😀 Its actually MY time where I don’t care about anything Else and just get involved in it . Its actually gives a better vibe than you chilling with your laptop or may be chilling at some pub burning your hard earned money in liquor (don’t kill me for this ) 😬. So get of your comfort zones and sweat it out 😅. Its for nobody !! Its for you 💪🏽💪🏽 So when you are upset or low you should definitely workout . NOTHING BEATS A GOOD WORKOUT !! 🏋️♀️🏋🏻♂️🤸🏻♂️🏊♂️🧘♀️
