Benefit of Exercise: Scientist Prove Running Makes You High

Every time I finish my run I feel so good.

Scientist in Germany published a report in March that proves that running can make you high. According to the paper my feeling of joy is not just a matter of feeling satisfied with doing something difficult like finishing a 10k but a result of biochemical effects on my brain.

The paper says, when you are running chemicals are released that alter your mood and those chemicals are endorphins. Endorphin is the natural hormone that is responsible for feeling happy. Running does elicit a flood of endorphins to the brain. The more endorphins a runner’s body pumps out the higher you feel.

This report explains why some us find running so addictive.
