Exercise reduces stress | Enlighten


Your body can benefit from nearly any type of physical activity. Participating in regular training time can lead to feelings of happiness created from endorphins. During physical activity your body actually makes more feel good neuropeptides (MayoClinic, 2014).

Physical training is often said to give a euphoric feeling, which is also usually accompanied by encouraging outlooks on life and events. Endorphins also help the body to diminish the feeling of pain. Physical activity helps the body fight disease as well as improves your physical condition (ADAA, 2014).
