It is not a coincidence that’s when you stay active or after your work out you feel less stressed out, less anxious and happier than you were before your workout. There are many reasons why exercise makes you happy and I am going to share 5 of the main reasons with you.

1. Happy Chemicals get Injected into Your Brain

A chemical which is becoming popular among many exercise lovers is called Dopamine, it is a neurotransmitter in the brain that creates the sense of happiness when you exercise.

When you are not active you tend to run out of this chemical. So, when you feel sad or in a bad mood just do some physical activity which will release Dopamine into your brain.

2. Physical Activity Reduces Stress

As part of life, 7 out of ten adults say they experience stress or anxiety on a daily basis. And this interferes with their lives.

The American Psychological Association surveyed people in 2008, more people reported physical and emotional symptoms of stress than they did in 2007 when the same survey was made. Half of them reported an increase in only a year.

Scientific study has found that when you do regular exercises it decreases overall levels of tension, make a positive impact on your mood, you sleep better, and your self-esteem is improved.

Even five minutes of physical activity will stimulate anti-anxiety effects in your system. Bottom line is this will make you a happier person.

3. More Energy

We all have down days, the days you really don’t want to do anything. You just feel like nothing is worth it. You even feel lazy to get out of bed in the morning. Studies have shown that when you feel exhausted from a long day at work or even early in the morning.

Work out is the best solution to get your energy back. You’ll feel energized after your work out than you did before it. Ever see someone who has a lot of energy but is not happy? There is your answer…

4. Confidence Booster

If you do not exercise very often you won’t feel good about your body or how you look. This lead to a low self-esteem. And that can have a negative effect on all areas of your life, without forgetting your relationships, your job, and your life goals.

On the contrary, if you do exercise, you will have a great body and you will love how you look. You will feel stronger, more confident and of course, happy happy!

5. Better Sleep

You don’t need sleeping pills, but what you need is exercise instead. If you stay active on a regular basis has been proven by scientific studies to improve sleep.

So, if you are dealing with insomniacs or any kind of sleeping issue I suggest you start exercising, and you will see the change in your sleep quality. Now tell me, if you have had a great night of sleep won’t you be happier when you get up? I do!
