Run for that up-beat feeling

Have you noticed that on days that you run, you feel more enthusiastic and up-beat than normal? A study reported in the current issue of the Journal of Sport and Exercise Psychology found that people who are more physically active report greater levels of excitement and enthusiasm than people who are less physically active. The research carried out at Penn State University (USA) found that people are also more likely to report feelings of excitement and enthusiasm on days when they are more physically active.
