Sweating Out

Story at-a-glance -

  • If you’re lost in a seemingly bottomless-pit of shock and disillusionment, exercise brings a sense of purpose and focus that requires nothing more than putting one foot in front of the other
  • Exercise triggers the release of neurotransmitters such as endorphins, serotonin, dopamine, glutamate, and GABA, which are well-known for their role in mood control
  • Exercise may fight feelings of depression better than antidepressants while relieving feelings of anxiety, pain, insomnia, fatigue, brain fog, and more
