The Art Of Catching The Exercise High
Are you looking for a way to boost your mood, reduce stress, and improve your overall well-being? Look no further than exercise! Engaging in physical activity not only benefits your body but also has a profound impact on your mental health. In this article, we'll explore the art of catching the exercise high and how it can transform your life.
Understanding the Exercise High
Have you ever experienced a rush of energy and euphoria after a great workout? That sensation is commonly known as the "exercise high." When you engage in physical activity, your body releases endorphins, which are natural chemicals that act as mood elevators. These endorphins interact with receptors in your brain, reducing pain and triggering positive feelings.
Research has shown that the exercise high can have a profound impact on mental health. Regular exercise has been linked to reduced symptoms of depression, anxiety, and stress. It can help increase self-confidence, improve sleep patterns, and boost cognitive function.

Finding Your Exercise Routine
The key to catching the exercise high is finding a workout routine that you enjoy and can stick to. Don't force yourself to engage in activities that you find boring or tedious. Explore various options such as running, swimming, dancing, or weightlifting to find what suits your interests and preferences.
Consider joining a fitness class or partnering up with a friend who shares similar exercise goals. Having someone to exercise with can provide motivation and make the experience more enjoyable. Remember, the goal is to find pleasure in the physical activity, rather than viewing it as a chore.
Setting Realistic Goals
Setting realistic goals is crucial to catching the exercise high and staying motivated. Start small and gradually increase the intensity and duration of your workouts. Celebrate your achievements along the way to maintain motivation and keep pushing forward.
It's also important to listen to your body and give it the rest it needs. Overexertion or pushing yourself too hard can lead to burnout and demotivation. Give yourself permission to take rest days and prioritize recovery. Remember, consistency is key.
Mindfulness and the Exercise High
Mindfulness plays a significant role in experiencing the exercise high. Be present in the moment during your workouts, paying attention to how your body feels and the sensations you experience. Notice the increase in heart rate, the sweat on your brow, and the flow of energy through your muscles.
Practicing mindfulness during exercise can enhance the overall experience and help you tap into the different sensations associated with the exercise high. This heightened awareness can bring about a deeper connection between your mind and body, allowing you to fully embrace the positive effects of physical activity.
Creating a Supportive Environment
Building a supportive environment around your exercise routine can significantly impact your ability to catch the exercise high. Surround yourself with like-minded individuals who value health and wellness. Share your goals and progress with them and seek their encouragement and support.
Additionally, consider designing an exercise space that motivates you. Whether it's a home gym, a designated corner in your living room, or an outdoor workout area, create an environment that is inviting and conducive to physical activity.
The art of catching the exercise high is about embracing the positive effects of physical activity on both your body and mind. By finding an exercise routine you enjoy, setting realistic goals, practicing mindfulness, and creating a supportive environment, you can experience the many benefits of the exercise high in your daily life.
So, what are you waiting for? Get moving, catch that exercise high, and unlock a world of improved mental well-being and overall happiness!

I went on a long journey to find health and fitness after a major accident and incredible recovery...
You can benefit from my long journey and learn how to feel good while exercising!
Now discover how life threw me a curveball...
I was in college enjoying my summer vacation when I decided to be the life of the party and jump off a pier into the water. Unfortunately, the water was not that deep and I ended up fracturing my 5th and 6th vertebrae in my neck, and rendering myself paralyzed from the waist down. I remember at the time I didn't really believe in God; I was receiving a liberal arts education. But when I dove into shallow water the only thing I could do to help me make it to the surface was paddle with my right hand in a circular motion. My legs and left arm could not move, and my paddling was not enough force to take my body to the surface. At that very moment I cried out to God! Help me...
The very next instant I heard a splash of water behind me, then a highly skilled lifeguard put his arms underneath mine from the back and secured my neck like a vise. The paramedics then secured me on a stretcher, and flew me off to a local hospital. My life would never be the same. I was paralyzed from the waist down, and had trouble with all my extremities. My left hand was very weak and even my fingers lost a lot of their strength and dexterity. In a relatively short period of time, thankfully I was able to take my first steps. Then I started my long road to recovery.
As a result I began taking an interest in weight training, and I was certified from the NSCA as a personal trainer. After learning the benefits of exercise I moved on to martial arts, and earned a black belt after about 15 years of training. Having so many physical disadvantages or handicaps as a martial artist forced me to find ways to improve. I worked on my flexibility, balance, coordination, hand strength, breathing, and whatever else I could think of? I felt my body getting better as a martial artist, and although I recognized the risk of injury I could see and feel my body getting stronger and more coordinated bit by bit, but there was always an underlying bit of weakness and lack of coordination that I would never regain. Seeing and feeling the healing benefits of the martial arts prompted me to take an interest in the origins of martial arts, and I began reading and studying Qigong and Yoga.
Now I'm selling a book that teaches people the fundamentals of exercise. I'm doing this because my journey showed me things that an ordinary person may not discover about exercise. I look at exercise from a different perspective, most importantly I teach people to feel good through exercise. I feel if I can show people how to feel good through exercise it can change their life for the better. I'm doing this because I feel it's a calling, so many people out there struggle with weight loss and with understanding the basic principles of exercise. I want to show them how easy and enjoyable this lifestyle can be.
This is important to me because I believe that feeling good is the cornerstone to everything in your life. If a great artist feels good chances are they will produce a better piece of art (This may not be the best example)? If a homemaker is feeling good I'll bet they will clean the house a little better. No matter who you are or what you do, if you feel good you will be a better you! This is super important to me because teaching people how to feel good can change the world.
