Exercise as a natural mood enhancer

It never amazes me when I hear people say "I feel so much better after I exercise". Exercise is a natural mood enhancer. Even current research suggests that exercise can relieve symptoms such as depression, sadness, anger, hopelessness, fatigue, etc. Why? Experts believe the effects exercise has on the endorphins and other mood-lifting neuro-transmitters in the body make this possible. Exercise is also known to reduce levels of the stress hormone, "cortisol" in the body.
So, along with the positive effect on your body physically, exercise can now have a positive effect on you emotionally. So get up and get moving and feel better in every aspect of life.

Here's to feeling good and looking good.
