The exercise was praised as a cure for almost anything, from depression to memory loss, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and many others. It’s a pretty good thing everybody knew the movement produces the release of endorphins in the body, which gives us a sense of well-being, even happiness.
But what exactly happens in our body when we exercise? Most of us are aware of what is going on with our bodies when we exercise. Build more muscle mass or more endurance.
Feel how daily activities, such as climbing stairs, become easier if you practice regular physical exercise. When it comes to the brain and our state of mind, however, is no longer so clear. If you start to do exercise, your brain recognizes it as a moment of stress. As blood pressure increases, the brain thinks you either fight with the enemy, whether they run away from him in order to protect yourself and your brain from stress, release a protein called BDNF (Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor derived neurotrophic Factor in Cerebral/Synthesised).
This has a protective BDNF and restorative for your memory neurons and acts as a reset switch. That’s why we feel so comfortable and things are clearer after practicing physical exercise and even feel happier. At the same time, endorphins and other substances meant to fight stress, are released into the brain.
The main purpose of this tale is endorphins, writes researcher McGovern: “These endorphins tend to minimize the discomfort of exercise, blocks the sensation of pain and are associated with a sense of euphoria.” All in all, take place inside our brain and many actually are many times more active than when just sit down or mental focus:
So BDNF and endorphins are reasons why exercise we do make us feel so good. The somewhat spooky side is that they determine a behavioral addiction somewhat similar morphine, heroin or nicotine. The only difference? Well, they are actually good for us.
The key to maximizing happiness through physical exercise: do not do more, but focus on the moment when you do now get to everything that is interesting. Know the fundamentals of why exercise makes us happy and what happens in the cells of our brain drain.
The most important of course is now discovered, how can we decode this phenomenon in an optimal way and more durable. A recent study of Penn State University has thrown some light on this, and the results are more than surprising.
Researchers have found that in order to be more productive and happier in a day’s work, it doesn’t matter so much if you practice regularly, if you have not practiced physical exercise that day: “those who practiced physical exercise during the previous month, but not on the day of testing, have achieved better results in the memory test than those who were sedentary, but have not approached nearly as much to those who practiced exercise that morning.
“Author of success with articles published in New York Times Gretchen Reynolds wrote an entire book on the subject, titled “The first 20 minutes.” In order to achieve the highest level of happiness and health benefits, the key is not to become an athlete. On the contrary, it requires much less to reach the level where happiness and productivity are within every day: “the first 20 minutes of exercise, if someone was really sedentary, provides most of the health benefits. Have a longer life, reduced risk of diseases-all these things occur in the first 20 minutes of physical activity “. So you can relax and you don’t have to be on the lookout after the next physical activity. All you have to do is to concentrate on the 20 minutes to get the momentum of happiness every day.
Days with exercise, the mood of the people has improved after practice. The state remained the same in the days have not practiced, except the feeling of calmness, which was damaged “(University of Bristol) how to develop a custom constant practice of physical exercise: Dancing with endorphins, Now everything is nice when you hear
However, beginning the practice of regular physical exercise, or even practicing every day is easier written than done. After all, it takes much effort to gain the habit of doing exercise daily.
The most important part you need first is labeled as practicing is a habit “key Vault”, according to Charles Duhigg, author of New York Times magazine of the book The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business/custom Power: what we do in life and in business.
This means that practicing regular exercise can not only opens the way to happiness but development in other areas of your life.
