Why exercise, workout, sport, and outdoor activities make you happy…
I was told i look funny when i left the Gym one time, i had no idea. Few times some friends ask what was so funny, about what?. They asked about leaving the Gym. I was told that i was laughing for no reason. I have no problems confronting my friend’s wife Dr. Josie…, Psychologist and busy with all type of cases, but mine was simple. She said it is the chemicals in your head that called endorphins.
What are endorphins?…HOW STUFF WORKS…TRYING TO EXPLAIN IN A NONE SO SOPHISTICATED MEDICAL LANGUAGE……………
Endorphins are among the brain chemicals known as neurotransmitters, which function to transmit electrical signals within the nervous system. At least 20 types of endorphins have been demonstrated in humans.
In addition to decreased feelings of pain, secretion of endorphins leads to feelings of euphoria, modulation of appetite, release of sex hormones, and enhancement of the immune response. With high endorphin levels, we feel less pain and fewer negative effects of stress. Endorphins have been suggested as modulators of the so-called “runner’s high” that athletes achieve with prolonged exercise. While the role of endorphins and other compounds as potential triggers of this euphoric response has been debated extensively by doctors and scientists, it is at least known that the body does produce endorphins in response to prolonged, continuous exercise.
The bottom line: This brain chemical produced upon exerting high energy. Like running, swimming, and sex too, also dancing, walking for long period. It is either from high fast released of energy, or and prolong exercise. It make one feel good, and far from pain or stress.
For further details ask your doctor or Physician. Do not try this on your own, it might make one addictive..to similar. drugs….as high profile researchers and doctors relate to other drugs for the simple relation….Stay natural.
