Positivity is a powerful tool! Having a positive attitude can make you feel inspired, confident, happy, optimistic, and it gives you the strength and energy not to give up. This frame of mind is important in living a happy, healthy life. The weight loss & life coaching program that we offer at Great Fit can help give you a more positive attitude with coaching, exercise, and good nutrition. It has been proven that when you exercise, your body releases chemicals called endorphins. Endorphins act as natural pain killers and are also the body's "feel-good" chemicals that boost your mood! There have also been studies conducted on the power of a smile. When we smile, a positive feedback loop sends the information to our brain, reinforcing our feeling of joy. Smiling activates the release of neuropeptides, such as dopamine, endorphins, and serotonin, which reduces stress, lifts your mood and can lower your heart rate and blood pressure. Not only can smiling benefit you, it can also benefit those around you. Smiling is contagious and radiates good energy!
