Exercise makes us happy because it increases our brain’s production of dopamine, which is a chemical in our brain that transmits feelings of happiness or pleasure. Exercise also eases daily stress, and it prepares us to manage stress in the long term. This is because exercise exposes our bodies to a low level of stress, which prepares us to handle future stressors in life.*
Make an effort to work out, no matter how tired you are. Exercise will leave you feeling more energized than you were before, and more energy makes us all happy!
