Do you feel happier after you’ve exercised?

As a person who love to exercise and stay in shape as best I can, I can say I feel great after working out. I can go from feeling sluggish from super happy and good after I’ve worked out.

I feel happier, yes, but only because it's finished. πŸ˜›

@evestrat Oh, touchΓ©! Hahaha!

That is wholly dependent upon the form of the exercise taken.
Nudge, nudge, wink, wink, say no more.

@ScienceBiker That's not always a good thing.

Main reason is because endorphins get stirred up causing you to have a chemical high from drugs right in your own bran.

it was just the endorphins your honor....lol

Now that I think about it, yes! Thanks for the motivation πŸ™‚

Yes-getting exercise just walking in this city I am visiting.

Who doesn't like an endorphin high?

2

Yes, I do.

I am in quite a pickle right now though.

I have a membership to Anytime Fitness. Where I used to live, I had about four or five that I could go to around me and they were all excellent gyms. Clean, updated equipment and roomy.

Since I moved, the only two that are close to me are so small, filthy, crowded and have old crappy equipment, that I have not even gone again. I have not put 100% effort into finding another gym, but I realized just a while ago that it has been a good three weeks since I have worked out and I am really not liking that. 😟

After a workout I feel like I have accomplished something which, in turn, feels pretty good. The only time of day that it makes sense for me to work out is in the morning, and I am most definitely not a morning person. I never really feel like working out that time of day, but I do it anyway. So it's like twin accomplishments -- pushing past the "morning barrier" and actually having a constructive workout.

in the sense that I'm glad it's over....yes.

I do physical activity that is fun firstly, the exercise is bonus.
Such as tossing the frissbie, riding my bicycle, punching my heavy bag, and my all time funest P.A. roller skating.

2

Absolutely. I have a rule in life that if I'm ever wondering whether to go out or not, I should always go out. In my experience just the action of going outside and doing something (even if it isn't very physical) lifts the spirits and you always have a good time, even if the weather is bad.

YES!!!

I always feel better after exercise.

Oh yeah I love a good exorcism.

1

Hmm, physically or mentally? Mentally happier, physically worn out.

1

Yes. Almost any kind of exercise works but yoga is best for me.

I love yoga.

Same here.

1

Yes I generally do its often very refreshing!

No... unless the exercise was sex and it was not the exercise part what brought me happiness... was the climax. But I can see a lot of people feeling happy after exercise and all that sweating... All your moving parts in your body releasing energy sure feels good, the adrenaline coming down after a good workout... but I kind of prefer for my happiness a certain relaxed state. To me dancing is not exercise is kind of church ceremony and more than my physical is exercise and communion for my soul and spirit.

I used to but no longer. Arthritis now trumps endorphins for me.

the exercise I get is gentle walking the beach - just 4 minutes away or walking up the town - quite a few hills - when I first came here we walked up every mountain in Northern Ireland and a fair few in the South I also did the causeway walk most days; but now my hips are beginning to give me gyp and its quite nice to be easy - there is an outdoor fitness centre at the beach but a lot of the machines squeak and sound awful.

Just finished a six mile tempo run. Feeling good, now where's my beer?

I just started exercising again trying to get back in shape. I am looking for happy, but so far I've only encountered pain, soreness and exhaustion.
