ENDORPHINS

(Chemicals that make you feel good)

Endorphins are defined as hormone-like substances that are produced in the brain. These are the chemicals that make you feel good and are also the body’s natural pain killers.

During exercise, these endorphins are released, and have been known to produce feelings of euphoria and a general state of well-being. These neurotransmitters offer a variety of additional health benefits, including emotional elation, stress reduction, improved immune systems, and decreased pain perception.

Exercise is said to have the effects of a general boost in mood and happiness, and the best type of exercise for improving your mood is cardiovascular exercises and aerobics. This is because vigorous exercise helps to release the chemicals necessary for the mood-raising high.

Physically active people recover from mild depression more quickly and physical activity is strongly correlated with good mental health as people age.
