Why exercise makes you feel happier and healthier

19.1K Shares Share It has long been known that physical activity can be beneficial to our health, but there’s now new evidence to support the idea that it also makes us feel happier, more confident, and more energetic.

Researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign analyzed data from nearly 200,000 people in the US to learn how much exercise they did at home and how much time they spent doing it.

They found that people who exercised regularly were more satisfied with their lives, and their levels of physical activity were correlated with higher levels of well-being.

It turns out that physical exercise increases a person’s energy, happiness, and sense of well being.

The study also found that exercising regularly was correlated with a higher level of self-esteem, and a decrease in the amount of stress they felt.

Exercise can also reduce the risk of some chronic illnesses, such as diabetes, heart disease, and depression.

This study was published in the journal PLoS ONE.
