Do you know that exercise is good for you body not only physically but mentally? Exercise helps reduce stress and depression in your life. When your heart starts pumping your body naturally produces endorphins, so essentially you are getting “high’ when you workout. Don’t worry this isn’t a drug type of high. Its a feel good, positive and energetic sensation that your body experiences. You will feel accomplished and boost your immune system.
As women we feel sad, lonely, depressed. Wallowing in low self esteem or self doubt we find ourselves walking to the fridge for comfort food. Next time this happens laces up your shoe laces and go for a walk!
