Get Into a Better Mood by Exercising

We are endlessly being encouraged to exercise in order to improve and maintain our physical fitness levels and to ward off diseases such as high blood pressure, heart disease, and diabetes. Some of us go along happily while countless others do not. Health and fitness do not seem to provide sufficient incentive to get us off the couch and unto the treadmill, into the pool - or even into a pair of sneakers to walk around the block,for some reason.

If more people knew about the benefits your brain gets from exercising more people would do it. If you tell someone that doing a little bit of exercise might improve their well-being, said person might be more willing to actually exercise in order to improve mood, fitness, and health. While this is not logical, it is the way people’s minds work. When your mood is negative you do not have any motivation to do any long term goals or challanges.

It is easier to exercise to improve someones mood. Even 10 minutes of moderate exercise can help lower your stress levels and keep your mood positive. Conversely, you cannot honestly expect to achieve the traditional benefits of exercise (physical fitness and health) for however long it takes, unless you commit to at least thirty minutes of moderate – but regular – exercise a day. You should keep a light exercise regimen through out your life or it will have a negative affect on your mental and physical well being..

Studies have demonstrated that exercising impacts the brain in a variety of ways, among them, what is termed neurogenesis the building of nerve tissue which is believed to enhance a person’s mood and release endorphins. Endorphins are chemicals or hormones that are released by the pituitary gland in response to stress or pain which is precisely what exercise means to many people. Endorphins send a message to the brain that blocks pain and promotes feelings of euphoria. Researchers have reported that Beta-endorphin injections improve the moods of depressed patients. Adrenaline, serotonin and dopamine, which are also released by your body when you exercise, work together with endorphins to boost your mood naturally – and almost immediately.

"Endorphin" literally refers to morphine that the human body manufactures. The reason behind that is? Sense Endorphins are similar to the chemical makeup of morphine they can also help you feel no pain. The Brain receptors that react to endorphins also react to Morphine. Exercise has more of a role than just triggering the release of endorphins in your body in the bloodstream, it also significantly reduces levels of the stress hormone cortisol, thus reducing tension and anxiety.

The best part is that you don’t need to run a mile or to spend an hour at the gym. A moderate amount of exercise will significantly improve your mood. In addition to these natural chemical processes, exercise can, of course, improve your self-image, boost your confidence and distract you from everyday worries, making you a happier person on the long run.

You should power off the television and go outside for a fast paced walk. When you are finished you will find that you feel a lot better and will probably try it again soon. You may even get to the point where your exercise will improve your physical well-being along with your all-important mental well-being.
