Turn Up the Music
Any exercise is better than no activity at all, but you could be missing out on some of exercise’s best benefits if you’re not getting your heart rate high enough. Moderate to intense exercise prompts the release of endorphins, the feel-good chemicals in the brain that elevate your mood and boost your immune system. To motivate you to get that blood pumping faster, try adding some upbeat music to your workout. Music can also enhance serotonin release, a neurotransmitter which also helps make you happy.
