Connects You With Others
One of the primary ways that exercise changes your brain is by connecting you with others. Social interaction is essential for human happiness and health, and being physically active provides the perfect opportunity for social connection. Whether you’re working out in a group fitness class or simply chatting with friends after a run, exercise opens up the door to healthy socializing, and your workouts become more fun and effective as a result.
Makes Your Brain More Sensitive To Joy
When you work out, your brain releases endorphins, which are hormones that create a sense of euphoria. This not only feels good in the moment, but it also encourages you to continue working out so that you can continue feeling those good sensations. In addition, exercise can also help to reduce stress levels, which can improve your mood and make you more social.
Helps Build Trust and Belonging
Have you ever been part of a group exercise activity where, from the moment you stepped on the floor, you felt totally accepted by your teammates? Exercise builds trust and belonging because, like it or not, we make immediate judgments about each other. Simply put, the more you workout together with a group, you develop a community and experience trust, belonging, and satisfaction.
Can Transform Your Self Image
Regular exercise can actually change the way you see yourself. It can help to boost your self-esteem, and make you feel better about yourself overall. When you start to feel better about yourself, it can have a positive impact on other areas of your life as well. You may find that you are more likely to take care of yourself, have more energy to spend with your family, and are generally happier.
At ExerGame Interactive Fitness, we’re leading a charge to incorporate better technology into fitness. At the end of the day, when you’re engaged in fitness, you’re happier and healthier — and there’s no better way to make fitness engaging than with gamification and technology.
