    7 Ways Exercise Leads to Happiness

    Post by Princessa on Sun Apr 12, 2009 9:12 pm

    The way to not only heal emotional pain, but to achieve true happiness is through physical exercise. Now medication can be effective, but exercise has been proven to be at least if not more effective for folks who are depressed without the side effects of sexual dysfunction, difficulty sleeping and suicidal thinking.

    Psychotherapy can also be helpful in exploring the reasons why you are not living a fulfilling life. A skilled therapist will ask you questions that can lead to new insights. A good therapist can also help guide you through the pain and teach you how to love yourself.

    Perhaps before you try the psychotherapist or medication routes, you can delve into exercise. If you have never exercised before or haven’t for a long time, obtain your physician’s clearance to work out.

    Here are seven ways you can increase your sense of happiness through exercise:

    1. Exercise will bring you into a totally new world and can forever positively transform your life.

    2. Exercise will tone your body. Therefore you will begin to feel better about the way you look.

    3. The brain chemistry changes while you are working out; leading to feeling calm.

    4. You will feel a sense of accomplishment after each time you exercise leading to improved self-esteem.

    5. Exercise can be a healthy means of distracting yourself from your emotional pain. Exercise can also be a means to face your emotional pain because the increased confidence will allow you to deal with internal traumas in a bold, self-assured manner.

    6. Exercise by itself is known to improve depression and anxiety.

    7. Exercise has been proven to make you smarter. Therefore you will develop the skills you need to let go of your emotional pain and discover genuine happiness.
