Most people exercise to loose weight and stay healthy, both of which are very important for a well-balanced life. What many people fail to consider, are the positive effects exercise has on the mind, our daily thought process and the emotional reactions we face each day.
When we exercise – when our heart rate is elevated, we breathe heavily, and we perspire – the brain releases endorphins and other hormones that induce happiness. This directly changes our emotional reactions to daily situations. When our emotional reactions change, our Lives change.
