“A new YouGov survey has some surprising news when it comes to releasing endorphins:
It turns out British adults experience a natural high from exercise in only 9 minutes and 44 seconds,”
…writes Annie Simon in this Independent article.
Women achieve endorphins release faster than men, younger faster than older, but it’s only a few minutes difference between all groups.
What does this mean?
This finding may help those who have a tough time getting motivated. It can be hard to get off the couch or out of bed to do a workout…
But the benefits are quick if you do!
Your mindset full of do-nothing cobwebs gets cleared out fast when the endorphins show up. I was so glad to find this article, because it confirms what I had already figured out
My daily 30 minute A.M. Endorphin workout that I use does just that:
10 minutes of brisk aerobics. 5 minutes of flexing. 15 minutes with weights.
All while listening to an encouraging message, or music, or a video stimulating my mind.
They last all day long too!
Creativity shows up ready to go. As does humor, well-being, fun! Difficult projects are MUCH easier to conquer.
The challenge of getting things done is enjoyable.
You do not have to run a marathon to release and enjoy Endorphins all day long!
