Raise your hand if you want more happiness in your life!
I have some amazing news that can help with that … exercise can actually make you feel HAPPIER – both immediately and in the long-term.
FIRST – people who get at least 30 minutes of exercise most days of the week are 30% more likely to say they feel happier vs. those who don’t … and it doesn’t matter what kind of exercise they do!It could be yoga, jogging, or anything in between.
This finding was part of a major review of 23 published studies into the connection between happiness and exercise, including people from basically every age, ethnicity and socioeconomic status.
Note: researchers still found higher “happiness scores” even in those who just worked out 1-2x a week.
SECOND – getting a cardio workout can help inoculate you against a bad mood for up to 12 hours!
According to research done at the University of Vermont, getting a 20-minute moderate-intensity workout in can boost your mood for hours – helping you to more easily shrug off stress.
The takeaway: Try getting in a workout if you want to bust stress, beat a bad mood, or create more happiness in your life! And… we would love to help! Want to learn more?
