Endorphins, Natural Enemy of Sleep Deprivation, Depression and Stress

We’ve already covered stress in a previous post so I won’t talk much about it. However, when we talk about people who have trouble with sleeping or have symptoms of depression, stress is usually a factor that comes into it. Luckily Endorphins are here to save the day and ensure that you get a good nights sleep and feel more positive about life.

Really all this stuff I’ve said before but it’s really important and so I’m reinforcing for you.

Release endorphins, block pain, feel good, the end!

That’s the long and short of it.

Why this helps sleep though? This is because most often than not people release Endorphins through exercise. Not only do you feel great after but because you’ve worked out for an hour rather than sitting on the coach watching tv, you have done something to make you feel tired! A lot of the time people who have trouble sleeping are just not tired. They haven’t done anything during the day to make their bodies need to rest.

As soon as you start exercising it will have a snow ball effect. Endorphins will be released to help elevate your mood and keep your positive attitude more consistent. Then you will get tired because you are doing physical activity which will in turn make you happier. And finally stress will go down because you are looking after yourself and are happy and are sleeping you have three less things to worry about in your day!

Endorphins are the gift our bodies give us to live a natural, holistic and incredible life. Go out there and release them and feel the Natural High!
