Did you know that exercise can make a big difference to not only your physical health, but your mind too? Many of use work long hours and hold down stressful jobs which need a release every now and then. Exercise is a great natural stress buster!
When we exercise, our bodies release hormones called endorphins. These are the body’s natural stress busting hormone. These endorphins make us feel good and help to relax us after a long day. Other things also release endorphins, like eating a chocolate bar, hugging a close friend or pet. Exercise is a better option because it gives you time to yourself where you can clear your head. Running is said to be as good as a therapy session!
