Why Does Exercise Boost Your Mood?

A healthy, well-rounded lifestyle is made up of a balanced diet, a strong sense of social support, and routine exercise. Consistent exercise brings tons of health benefits, including real effects on your mental outlook. 

Let’s take a closer look at how and why exercise helps boost your mood.

Why does exercise make me feel better?

Routine exercise has a positive impact on both your mental health and physical well-being. 

The physical benefits are obvious. You get stronger and more fit, and you boost your immune system’s ability to stave off disease. Being in shape also means a lower risk of injuries and conditions like diabetes and heart disease.

why does exercise make you happy?When you commit to physical exercise, you also give yourself a mental boost. The cosmetic improvements associated with exercise and weight loss can boost confidence and self-esteem, but you will often feel a certain “high” immediately after exercising. If you’ve ever wondered, “Why does exercise make me feel better?”, here’s why. When you work out, your brain releases endorphins, a chemical that fights stress, anxiety, and pain. The chemical also boosts pleasure to make you feel happier. In this way, exercise gives you a way to turn off the stresses of everyday life, improving your mood and making you less prone to depression and anxiety

Keep Exercising, Keep Feeling Good

Keeping your mood up through exercise is easy when you have access to the right equipment.

Treadmills, Exercise Bikes, and Ellipticals

  • Increase the incline of your Treadmill
  • Turn up the resistance on your elliptical
  • Challenge yourself to a new personal best on your stationary bike

Push-up and Pull-Up Bars

Push-up and pull-up bars use your own weight to work out your muscles. 

  • Use push-up bars to work out your chest, triceps, and shoulders. Perform various types of push-ups and even basic floor dips using this equipment.
  • Stick a pull-up bar on a doorway and start building your back and biceps with pull-ups and chin-ups.

With push-up and pull-up bars, you can ride the high of exercise conveniently at home.

Anti-Burst Exercise Balls

As good as you might feel getting your sweat on, pushing yourself too hard can backfire. Balance is key. Don’t forget about the lighter stuff.

Anti-burst balls are great for yoga sessions, stretching, and engaging the core. Even simple exercises like these will elevate your mood. 

Home Gyms

When it comes to convenient, all-around workouts, you can’t beat the home gym. From simple dumbbells to more complex machines and trainers, home gyms make every day a mental health day. Training with your home gym equipment lets you work out every part of your body at home, releases mood boosting endorphins, and increases blood flow to the brain.
