A cocktail of chemicals

"The wise man should consider that health is the greatest of human blessings."

– Hippocrates

Hippocrates said that a loooong time ago. We now know that when we exercise, our bodies release a cocktail of chemicals like serotonin, dopamine, and endorphins that make us feel GREAT!


Once that elixir gets going, you may also experience:

 

●     Lower levels of anxiety

●     Reduced symptoms of depression

●     Feelings of relaxation

●     Creative solutions

●     Improved focus

 


Those are just a few incredible benefits of regular workouts. It doesn’t matter if you’re kickboxing, dancing, running on the treadmill or lifting weights…

 

Movement is like pressing your “refresh” button when you need a mental and emotional reboot. Need help getting started?

 

Here are a few tips:

 

  1. Start small. Instead of committing to an hour-long workout right off the bat, try a 10-minute walk for starters.

  2. Find what you enjoy. Don’t like lifting weights? Then don’t start there! Try yoga, a hike, dance — as long as you’re up and moving, it all counts!

  3. Pay attention to how it makes you feel. If you tend to look for physical results immediately after you start a new workout habit, focus on the mental and emotional results instead. Noticing how much better you feel can make it easier to stay on track.

 

And if you still need help or more accountability to get you going (and so much more) be sure to subscribe to the Bright Futures Fitness weekly newsletter!
