How can physical activity impact my mood?

Every little bit of movement can help reduce stress and promote happier feelings. In fact, you don’t need to run a marathon to get a runner’s high. Any movement like a brisk walk, tobogganing or doing jumping jacks will quickly provide some mood-boosting effects! Getting active reduces levels of the stress hormones, cortisol and adrenaline, and increases endorphins and the feel-good chemicals, dopamine and serotonin. That’s why physical activity literally boosts your mood!

Looking to promote happy feelings throughout your organization?

We’ve created a Move for your Mood Action Plan that outlines how to help your colleagues and members enjoy an active, happy and healthy day through physical activity!

It’s simple to implement, it’s completely free, and best of all, all organizations who download the Action Plan have a chance to win an annual ParticipACTION+ subscription!
