I really enjoy the natural high my body gets from working out and how it seems to make other elements of my life very clear. When you finish a challenging exercise, you can actually feel the healthy flow of blood through your veins and feel a renewed source of energy. Your mind will be clearer because of the increased levels of serotonin released when you exercise. Also, exercising releases endorphins throughout your body so you feel happier! Besides feeling happier through those endorphins, you will start to see positive changes in your body that will make you less moody and more motivated.
You might not realize it, but as you exercise, you are staying focused on a particular task. Whether it be a game of tennis or spin class, exercising almost forces you to meditate so that when you are finished, you have forgotten about your troubles. It is really incredible how the mind and body are so dependent on each other!
