Exercise also makes you happy. Not just gleeful happy, but on cloud nine-tickled pink-giddy-silly happy! How?
When we exercise, the body releases chemicals called endorphins. They interact with receptors in the brain acting as analgesics to reduce our perception of pain. The endorphin feeling is similar to that of morphine.
So work out hard and relish in the intensity to earn that endorphin high that will make you blissful, peppy, and perky all day long.
Be careful when gulping a post workout iced triple espresso. The endorphin caffeine cocktail will leave you high as a kite!
