Keep On Moving

You've possibly heard that exercise is therapeutic. It is important for physical, psychological, and emotional health/well being. Exercise stimulates the brain and makes it secrete "endorphins" which lift up the mood. When you exercise, your brain produces larger amounts of neurotransmitters (lubricants of the brain's chemical reactions). In other words, through exercise, the brain functions more effectively and efficiently. This means no or less depression and anxiety.
