Exercise is a POWERFUL drug

Hi Everyone,

I just read this:
"Someone wants to get a good education. Why? So they can get a good job/career. Why? So they can have a nice house and nice things. Why?

So they can be happy.

Someone wants to lose ten pounds of fat. Why? So they look better. Why? So they feel better. Why?

So they can be happy.

Tony’s point is that maybe instead of taking roundabout ways to get our true goal – we should study happiness. It’s a really young field. Apparently prior to 1988 all psychology was about the study of abnormal conditions and people and how to make them normal. But the scientists had never studied how to make normal people happier.

This is when it hit me…

People spend time seeking things that they think will give them happiness. Instead of just seeking what would bring happiness."

Exercise is a powerful drug. It seduces many with its zen-like state a feeling that was fondly coined the "runner's high" in the 1970s. The lure of exercise is often so strong that it can turn enthusiasts into addicts.


The Psychological Benefits of Exercise

•Physical activity is increasingly becoming part of the prescription for the treatment of depression and anxiety. Exercise alone is not a cure, but it does have a positive impact.
•Research has found that regular physical activity appears as effective as psychotherapy for treating mild to moderate depression. Therapists also report that patients who exercise regularly simply feel better and are less likely to overeat or abuse alcohol and drugs.
•Exercise can reduce anxiety - many studies have come to this conclusion. People who exercise report feeling less stressed or nervous. Even five minutes of aerobic exercise (exercise which requires oxygen, such as a step class, swimming, walking) can stimulate anti-anxiety effects.
•Physical exercise helps to counteract the withdrawal, inactivity and feelings of hopelessness that characterize depression. Studies show that both aerobic and anaerobic exercise (exercise which does not require oxygen, such as weightlifting) have anti-depressive effects. •Moods such as tension, fatigue, anger and vigor are all positively affected by exercise.
•Exercising can improve the way you perceive your physical condition, athletic abilities and body image. Enhanced self-esteem is another benefit.
•Last, but not least, exercise brings you into contact with other people in a non-clinical, positive environment.
