It’s summertime and that means you have plenty of options when you’re looking to fill those long sunny days with activities. But are those movies, video games or household chores really making you happy? Sure, chores are important and hanging out at home can be relaxing, but a visit to FLIPnOUT can actually help you increase your happiness level. We’ll tell you why.
It makes your brain happy.
Did you know that physical exercise literally makes you happier? That’s because activity – like jumping on trampolines! – actually releases chemicals into your brain called dopamine. These chemicals give you “happy” feelings. In fact, exercise is important for adults, because dopamine stores decrease as you age. Jump around and get happy!
It eases stress.
Stressed out? Jump about it! Breaking a sweat actually can help you feel less stressed out. As your heartrate increases, your hormones change, and that change can help you feel more calm and less stressed out and worried; we’ll take it!
It gives you energy.
Feel like you don’t have the energy for physical activity? You can’t afford to avoid it! Exercising actually tends to make you feel more energized post-activity, so if you feel like you need some motivation to clear off your to-do list, try jumping around beforehand.
It’ll help you sleep.
If you’re like most people, a lack of sleep can really affect your mood. But you know what helps you sleep better? Jumping around! Actually, exercise has been scientifically proven to help people with insomnia and other sleep disorders. Hey, whatever works!
Exercise is great for your overall happiness, but exercise with friends and family is even better! Physical activity can really help people bond, so if you’re looking to bond as a family, improve business morale or get closer to friends, there’s no better place than FLIPnOUT!
Your turn! What physical activity helps you get your happy on?
