Exercise has numerous benefits. One benefit is that as you exercise your body releases natural opiates, called endorphins, which block pain receptors and give you a feeling of euphoria.

    I've been doing more exercise for about 5 years, and my skin is softer, my body is leaner, and my disposition is happier. I was surprised by the skin - my sensitive, dry, itchy skin is a thing of the past.

    I love to take a quick 20 minute run during my lunch. It helps, because it reduces stress, and almost always puts me in a better mood for the rest of the afternoon.

    I used to swim a lot and sprint the last half lap. I'd get out of the pool feeling oh so fine! Endorphins are a GOOD thing!
