There are many ways exercise makes us happier. When you get your heart rate up, when you use your body, when you engage your muscles, it changes your brain chemistry in a way that makes it easier to think and focus.
When you exercise, your brain releases endorphins, dopamine and adrenaline - these are all brain chemicals associated with feeling happy, feeling confident, feeling capable, feeling less anxiety and stress and even less physical pain.
Exercise is also shown to help some people with depression, which experts say could be to due an increase of in nerve growth in the brain that happens when you exercise.
When it comes to feeling happier and empowered in life, having confidence is key.
Exercise helps boost your confidence because when you workout, you're doing something challenging which gives you a sense of accomplishment.
When you move it creates a strong sense of power that makes people feel more optimistic and empowered about facing the challenges in their own lives.
