Why do you need to exercise when you are tired?

When we are flat, we are tempted to lie in bed and watch series, read if we have a little courage, or even do nothing at all. Good reflex... but AFTER having forced yourself to do a little sports session, even if it seems inhuman.

Because doing an exercise, not necessarily long or intense, helps us to produce hormones and neurotransmitters that will help fight our fatigue, thanks to their euphoric, energizing and relaxing effect.

The rest after will be all the better as we will have secreted lots of charming substances such as dopamine, adrenaline, noradrenaline, serotonin, endorphins... "In addition, sport awakens the levels of anabolic hormones such as testosterone , which is the hormone of action and arousal,” explains Dr. Alexendra Dalu.

We get it, it's more effective than hitting coffee. No need to go far, you can simply download an app like 7 Minutes Workout (read The 8 Best Fitness Apps to Sculpt Your Dream Body); we put on a little catchy music and shoo, we get down to it in our living room. The exercise will however be even more effective if it is practiced in the open air, because it allows the body to be oxygenated.
