A Little Natural Feel Good

We live busy lives. Busy. There is no way around it and there is only minimal respite. We skimp on certain things to make ends meet and indulge in only the barest of desires…..when time permits. But there is one thing that should never be sacrificed in order to keep responsibility in check and that is your exercise.

I stress this not only because you deserve to look your best, not only because it is good for overall health, but because exercising, even minimally, makes accomplishing everything from mowing the lawn to getting the kids to soccer practice much easier. All this brought to you by endorphins, a stronger, and more lightweight you!

Your body responds to the strenuousness of hard exercise by releasing a little feel-good chemical in the brain known as endorphins. These power-packing neurotransmitters elicit a sense of well-being well after your last set is finished. It allows you to tackle the mundane and the stressful with a little more kick. This is partly why you feel such a strong sense of accomplishment and well-being when you step out of the gym and a huge reason why you keep coming back. I suggest you focus intensely on that feeling and learn to yearn for it everyday. Before you know it, you will be back for another round ready for another dose of natural happiness.
