Exercise makes you happier than money


Is it possible? Could exercise actually make you happier than money? According to a new study, it's true

From womenshealth.com, "New research out of Yale and Oxford universities has found that the endorphins you get from working out can make you happier than money.

For the study, published in The Lancet,scientists collected data about the physical behaviour and mental state of over 1.2 million adults. They were quizzed on their income and activity level (e.g. mowing the lawn, childcare and housework, as well as workouts like cycling and weight lifting.) They were then asked the following question: "How many times have you felt mentally unwell in the past 30 days, for example, due to stress, depression, or emotional problems?" Those who exercised regularly said they felt down for 35 days each year on average, while the non-active folk felt down for an additional 18 days. Plus, the physically active participants feel just as good as those who weren’t active but who earned approx. $25,000 more annually." Pretty wild! So if you're feeling down and are strapped for cash, go to the gym! More here
