Meet endorphins, or the most positive hormones cruising around our bodies that can make EVERYONE happy! Endorphins are chemical compounds produced by our brain and spinal cord which are justifiably termed the “endogenous morphine,” or internally produced morphine. They provide pain relief, bring relaxation, joy and a sense of well-being. In this article, we are going to give you tips on how to maintain your good mood for a long time and how to effectively influence your mental well-being with endorphins released during workouts.

Pick an activity that best suits your needs

Has it ever happened to you that you said “absolutely not” to physical activity? It is definitely not a good idea. Physical effort helps to release the highest amount of endorphins, not only during but also after a physical activity. So, what can you do to ensure a regular endorphin rush? Choose an activity that is a real pleasure rather than a chore.

Do you like to feel your heart beat faster? Choose zumba, cross training, indoor cycling or a fitness class. If you also want to feel a nice adrenaline kick, try martial arts or a climbing wall.

Maybe you are one of those people who prefer physical activity at moderate intensity? If so, choose yogi, pilates, aqua aerobic or swimming.
