Heartbreak is a horrible thing, regardless of the reason. For some people, it can make it difficult to work, eat, and be around other people. Although heartbreak is an emotional feeling, there is a physiological connection between your mind and body. Therefore, what you are thinking and feeling emotional will affect how you feel physically, and vice versa. If you’re wondering if exercise can mend a broken heart, it can! It is one of the healthiest and easiest ways to help yourself begin to feel better. Read on to find out why.
Why Exercise is Good for Heartbreak
Heartbreak causes a physical reaction in your body. According to research, the area of your brain that is stimulated when you’re physically hurt is the same area that is stimulated when you experience rejection or lose someone you love. Exercise is a great way to release all the tension, stress, nervous energy, anger, and frustration that builds up when you are suffering emotionally. During exercise your brain releases endorphins. Endorphins are natural “feel good” chemicals that produce feelings of pleasure, happiness, and euphoria. They also help relieve pain. Exercise can also help tone your body and shed unwanted pounds, which can help boost your confidence and make you feel good about yourself.
