More scientific data that confirms the magic of exercise. Just a few minutes of some fun type of movement every day will result in the release of dopamine, the pleasure chemical in your brain.
The author also reports another effect of exercise – it trains your brain that your behavior matters. This phenomenon has been confirmed in other studies, including one from the Psychology blog Psyblog indicating that when people are depressed they tend to habitually engage in activities that cheer them up, like walking outdoors, listening to music, or exercising.
The science of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), which is the most effective form of therapy for anxiety and depression, supports these claims. It is essentially based on the idea that you have 2 levers that you can control to change your own mood: thoughts and actions.
The 5 actions suggested by the author have all been studied and they work, so if you don’t have time to do them all every day, try just one a day – you’ll be amazed at the effect on your mood, energy, and productivity.
