We all know exercise is good for our body, but it turns out it can also have a beneficial effect on our mind and emotions. Exercise is the magic bullet that jogs our endorphins into action.

Endorphins are neurochemicals and known as natural painkillers that activate opioid receptors in the brain. In short they are responsible for the feel happy phase after a workout. When you exercise your brain increases production of these neurochemicals. These transmitters then feed into the feel good circuits in the body and mind.

The emotional benefits of exercise can helps us meet the demanding stress of today’s life. So to chase away the stress and feel that endorphin rush, try a new workout today.
