Your brain is your best friend, it controls everything you do, how you feel.
This is how it can make you happy, just by taking a little exercise;
“What triggers happiness in our brain when we exercise?
If you start exercising, your brain recognises this as a moment of stress. As your heart pressure increases, the brain thinks you are either fighting the enemy or fleeing from it. To protect yourself and your brain from stress, you release a protein called BDNF (Brain – Derived Neurothropic Factor). This BDNF has a protective and also a reparative element to your memory neurons and acts as a reset switch. That’s why we often feel so at ease and things are clear after exercising and we have a happy sense of achievement” Leo Widrich, blog.bufferapp.com
