A dreary rainy day meets endorphins

Rain drops on an exercise bar at a park near my metro Atlanta home.   It’s been like this since early Tuesday.  Meteorolgists are predicting the light-steady rain will continue into Wednesday, perhaps changing into a light dusting of snow.

I completed the exercise circuit in the park before continuing my 4-mile run-walk through residential neighborhoods.  I was feeling negative effects of a dreary rainy day before I began.   The negative had turned to positive when I finished.   Here’s how.

When you exercise with sufficient effort, the body produces a “feel good” substance that’s better than any synthetic.  The substance is called “endorphins”.   Look it up. You may be inspired to make your own!
