Researchers discovered we believe we look healthier after working out despite the fact it may not have been enough to make us any fitter.
It also found that we don’t necessarily feel any better about ourselves when we do more exercise and do look fitter, say psychologists.
I am surprised with this piece of research. I have always felt better about myself after exercising. I just assumed it is all those hormones at work. Now I am led to think it has been all psychological? Very strange.
The study found no difference in body image improvement between people who exercised at least 30 minutes a day five days a week and those who did much less. Does this mean I can just do it for say.. 5mins a day and I would feel just as fantastic?
