running/exercise really DOES work wonders!
    #4313537 - 06/19/05 01:06 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

about an hour ago i felt very tired,weak, depressed and lazy and had no energy at all.

for some reason i went for a run to see if it would help and i came back feeling alert and awake i feel like I've got loads of energy and i feel quite happy.
and i only ran for about 15 minutes , i think i might take up running , feel really good.

just thought I'd share that.
if u feel like u have no energy and you feel tired or depressed , GO FOR A RUN!!

Nice, I might have to try that sometimes.
I always feel drained and crappy in the mornings.. Seems like I can barely force myself to get up.

yeah that what i feel like in the morning and during most of the day and night , i have a problem with getting up in the morning and i keep going back to sleep and the more i sleep the weaker i get and cant seem to get up.

I want to feel like i did when i was a child , full off energy and when i woke in the morning i got straight out of bed , i was the first one out in the morning hanging around with Friends and the last one in at night , now i can't even get out of bed , pathetic.

I hope i have the motivation to run every morning.

Running(soccer for me) works very very good to feel good for me.

A runners high is commonly associated with endorphins. The name endorphins comes from ENDO(GENOUS) + (MO)RPHIN(E), you do the math :smirk:.

Endorphins are endogenous opioid biochemical compounds. Endorphins regulate feelings of pain and hunger and are connected to the production of sex hormones.

Oddly enough, they are also generated in response to certain spices such as chili peppers. Chili peppers have thus been used as a treatment for certain types of chronic pain.

According to some reports, laughter also releases endorphins in the brain. So besides widening the blood vessels, suppressing the production of stress hormones and raising antibody levels in the blood, laughing would thus also have an analgesic effect.

Other things that happen while exercising: Amphetamine-like chemical linked to exercise mood boosts

I feel the exact same way. It used to be like that even before I got into frequent drug use. I wonder if it just has something to do with bodily chemical imbalances or not eating right, possibly a diet related thing?

Quote:

Phenylethylamine was an obvious chemical to investigate, she says. "An earlier study found that 60 to 70 per cent of people with depression had lower than normal levels.




Interesting, it makes me think that phenylethylamine would be useful to treat depression..

in india, they have laugh sessions where a 100 people will gather every morning and just force themselves to laugh. at first its hard to do, but once all these people start it going, it gets funny. they feel great afterwards.

physical exercise is essential. we feel bad when we do not use our physical bodies because doing so is unnatural - we are designed to be active not sedentary, tv-addicts.

Yes, exercise is better than everything else. Even eating and sleeping.
