I think it is safe to say that most of us have heard that working out makes you happier. Exercise releases dopamine which is essential for feeling happy.
Getting outside, taking a walk, and just being active are great ways to put you in a happier mood and release that dopamine. However, the best way to increase that dopamine output is to add more cardio and exercises to your routine.
Today, I wanted to share some common and simple exercises you can do improve your mood. If you are feeling sad, depressed and/or just “blue”, make yourself get up and do a round of these. It may take you about 30 minutes to complete, but I promise you (in most cases) it will make you feel better!!
Keep in mind, there are so many different cardio/workout options out there. If these aren’t for you, look into other forms that will better fit you and your lifestyle.
Here is a series of yoga poses that will help you stretch and boost your mood. I would suggest holding these poses for at least 15 seconds.
