The Power of Endorphins
Never underestimate the power of endorphins. A 10 minute brisk walk, a few reps of lifting weights, even a good stretch can get your body flowing with endorphins and give you a burst of energy and improve your mood. It is a fact that we eventually build a tolerance to prescription drugs (anti-depressants, mood stabilizers, stimulants) and that their effects quickly fade. Often times placebos are actually just as effective. Endorphins are free and always right at your fingertips- no side effects, no instructions - just the amazing human body working it's magic.
