Reason #4 Boost Your Mood! Exercise releases endorphins, which create feelings of happiness and euphoria. Studies have shown that exercise can even alleviate symptoms among the clinically depressed. For this reason, docs recommend that people suffering from depression or anxiety (or those who are just feeling blue). I have suffered from depression and I know it is a REAL thing! But I am able to keep it in check by working out. Just try and not to smile after killing it at the gym – its hard not to!
It also makes me a better Mom! By taking time out for myself to work out – I am happier and have way more patience with my kids! This reason alone should have you running to the gym 😉
