Release those endorphins

Most of us know that any type of physical activity causes the body to release endorphins. Endorphins interact with the receptors in your brain to reduce your perception of pain, which allows you to workout longer. They are also known to give us a feel good feeling, similar to that of morphine. Many of us can recall that positive feeling after a workout. That feeling also known as a “runner's high,” can be accompanied by a positive outlook on life. Many studies have indicated that this feeling can last for hours after your workout. Participating in some sort of physical activity on a regular basis is proven to relieve stress, lessen the feelings of depression and anxiety, boost your self-esteem and improve your sleep. Many studies have shown that exercise is an effective way to treat mild to moderate depression. It is important to add some sort of physical activity into our lives to help us feel healthy. Kickboxing is a unique and invigorating way to achieve this.
