1. Better Mood
Cranky? Get moving. Exercise makes you feel happier. When you work out, your body makes endorphins — “feel-good” chemicals in the brain. You can actually start to feel better within a few minutes of moving. But the effects of regular exercise can last for a long time.
2. More Energy
You might not expect it, but using energy to exercise gives you more get-up-and-go. Sometimes when you’re tired, the last thing you want to do is move. But when you exercise regularly, that fatigue goes away and you find yourself with a lot more pep.
