Practicing sports may make you happier

The benefits of physical activity are not limited to physical health and improve the health of the heart and memory, but, according to a recent study, sporting activities have a direct impact on the level of happiness and improved mood

There are countless health benefits of aerobics. In addition to weight loss, sport also offers great benefits for heart health, as it adjusts cholesterol in the body, as well as strengthening memory and raising the level of intelligence of people who continue to practice it. On the other hand, simple physical activities such as a quick walk, or attention to the garden of the house, also embrace many positive points. However, the good news is that the exercise or some activities may also make you happier, according to a study published in the Journal of the Happsss

A recent study by researchers at the University of Michigan, United States, showed that people who are physically active once a week are happier than those who have not had any physical activity. Researchers have also found that physical activity increases the positive mental health of people and at the same time reduces negative emotions such as depression and anxiety

The statistical analysis of 15 observation-based studies revealed that compared to inactive persons, the rate of increase in happiness was proportional to the proportion of sports activity, which ranged from 20-52 per cent. The more physical activity increases, the higher the rate of happiness, due to the release of the body to androgens, which doctors call “happiness hormone”, which the body produces during exercise

Researchers from the University of Michigan, where the study was conducted, said that achieving the weekly target of 150 minutes of moderate physical activity to the forces was highly correlated with a higher level of happiness
