2. Exercise in a Group
While working up a sweat is a great way to boost endorphins, Reader’s Digest says group exercise specifically has some “distinct advantages” in this area. “Not only will friends spur you on if you’re flagging, but the shared effort may give your endorphin levels an extra boost,” it explains.
The source backs this up by mentioning a 2009 study that showed that rowers working in synchronization “had an increased rush of these feel-good hormones” compared with those who rowed alone. However, if you don’t have an exercise partner, don’t count out the amazing benefits of solo walking or aerobics.
