I need the aerobic exercise to burn off the energy and stress I pile up, and yoga to stretch my muscles and chill me out.
Dopamine is a chemical in our brains connected to feelings of happiness and pleasure and is one that’s actually released during exercise. It’s thought that dopamine levels drop naturally over time, so working out is a great way to refuel the stores and keep them well stocked up.
Nothing makes me happier than yoga time on my mat, and it’s even better when my kids join in. Child’s pose indeed!
