3 Ways to Boost Your Mood!

Denise Austin by Denise Austin | May 14, 2016 | Lifestyle

Happy Saturday Everyone!  The wonderful thing about exercise is that is has countless benefits! The ones you often hear about are related to your physical well-being — it helps prevent chronic diseases like osteoporosis and certain types of cancer, improves heart and lung function, and is a key element in controlling and maintaining a healthy weight. But you should also relish the emotional benefits of exercise!

Here are my three ways to BOOST your mood:

  1.  Standing burns more calories and gets the blood circulated, so get off your seat, stand up and IMPROVE your mood! 
  2. Quick 10-minute cardio workouts boost your endorphins (the “happy” hormone) = boost your mood.
  3. Stress reduction exercises like yoga and stretching help release tension and anxiety.

No matter your age or sex, exercise is a mood booster! Even moderate levels of aerobic activity, such as brisk walking, can raise the endorphins, serotonin, and dopamine in your brain (your body’s feel-good chemicals). Working out regularly can also enhance creativity, reduce anxiety, and help combat depression. And meditative exercises like yoga are an especially powerful stress reliever!

So next time you need to blow off some steam, feel restless, or have trouble concentrating, try out my Yoga Refresh Challenge, FREE with my 7-day free trial of DeniseAustin.com!
