These endorphins are produced during prolonged and continuous workouts such as an intense cardio-vascular session with your personal trainer or a long run, but any form of exercise is beneficial. Exercise gives you time out from pressing concerns, providing you with time to think about things and breathing space from the demands of everyday life. The tension in your life which can mount up with daily pressures can be released resulting in less stress and reduced likelihood of feeling compelled to express anger or frustration.
