Winter can make you cranky and fussy, and there’s nothing better than the workout to fix that!
Exercise can be a great way to lift your mood and improve your emotions, as your body feels more relaxed and calm.
When you exercise, your brain releases endorphins, adrenaline, serotonin and dopamine. These chemicals all work together to make you feel good. In addition, after exercising you may feel a sense of accomplishment and your muscles will relax deeper because of the workout – easing tension and strain.
Intense exercise increases the release of those chemicals (endorphins, adrenaline, serotonin and dopamine) in your body. Cardiovascular exercise and aerobics are great for creating the intensity required for a mood-raising chemical high.
Yoga has been shown in studies to reduce tension and stress while improving mood. Yoga focuses on a range of stretching, breathing and motion that create a release of negative emotions in the body. Yoga, interestingly, has been shown to be particularly effective for men (compared to other exercises like swimming).
