Exercise Rush

Until recent years exercise was known for enhancing physical condition and combating disease. It wasn’t until recently that exercise has been noticed for cultivating mental health. Recent studies show a link between the release of endorphins and exercise. This stimulation of endorphins is also called “Runners High”. Although you may have not recognized its cause most of us have felt it. Whether its during a jog in the park or a high intensity workout we’ve all reached that point where the feeling of discomfort fades away and is replaced with a euphoric state. These are the effects of endorphins being released in the brain. 
Endorphins are a chemicals produced in the brain which bind to neuro-receptors to relieve pain and enhance the immune system. These endorphins are mainly released by exercise among other things. Everyone releases different amount of this chemical and some persons release enough to be able to come out of a depressive state. But the best thing about this is that you don’t have to do much to release these chemicals and enjoy this wonderful state of mind.
