I came across an amazing clip today that I wanted to share with my readers because I think it’s incredibly clever, as well as remarkably true.  Dr. Mike Evans from the University of Toronto shares with us one simple change we can all make that will benefit our lives in remarkable ways. Please watch:

Preventative medicine, in this case daily exercise, is often the cheapest and most effective way to feel good and avoid diseases that cause pain, frustration, and even death.  It’s amazing to consider all the physical health risks you can avoid by just 30 minutes of exercise a day.

Now what do you think it might do to your mental health?  When you exercise, your body releases endorphins, a feel good chemical that interacts with the pain receptors in your brain.  Essentially the endorphins diminish your perception of pain.  This can in turn reduce stress, boost self esteem, and strengthen your ability to manage feelings of anxiety and depression.

Take the challenge.  With just 30 minutes a day you could save your life.
