Endorphins: Awe + Play

Endorphins: Awe + Play

The Physical Trainer. This is that glorious rush of a runner's high. Stimulating your endorphins through movement energizes you and acts as a natural painkiller. Nicknamed the “feel-good” chemicals, they work similarly to opioids and cause a full-body sensation of euphoria and levity. Activated most potently by lengthy, vigorous exercise (like dancing with reckless abandon), but also by any form of physical activity that gets the blood flowing, endorphins are a natural reward for the work you’ve done. Recent research has also highlighted that giving—volunteering, donating or acting in service of your community—boosts endorphins through a natural “helper’s high.” And, regular meditation and yoga practice has been shown to contribute to the release of endorphins. Laughing, eating spicy foods (from the mild pain they prompt on the tongue) and treating yourself to dark chocolate (from its flavonoids) give a little boost too.
