Saturday-motivation: Exercise makes happier than marriage.

Additionally, a recent study out of Michigan State University and the University of Michigan asked 295 mental health patients if they wanted to start exercising more, and if they thought exercise improved their mental health.
Eighty-five percent said they wanted to exercise more and 80 percent believed exercise helped improve their mood.
According to www.mindbodygreen.com
these are the two main steps to maximize obvious mental health benefits (science-backed).
1. Grab a friend.
It has long been known that exercising with a friend makes you more likely to stick with it, but a study released in October
found that exercising with a friend also makes you happier.
2. Get outside.
According to neurologist Ilene Ruhoy
, exercise creates a perfect cocktail of positive chemicals in our brains.
