Exercise in general releases endorphins which make you feel happy. Working out can make you feel better for that reason. It does not guarantee that you will make visible progress that makes you feel more positive, but it is good for you and the endorphins do help.
My experience with this is that i love exercise, but i hate working out in gyms. It's monotonous, boring and I don't enjoy it. I instead picked up exercises that I enjoyed that didn't feel like JUST exercise, like taking walks, moving around in my house for cooking and cleaning, pacing at bus stops, and biking frequently. Exercise in general makes you feel good, exercise that you enjoy makes you feel really good.'
This is also important because if you want to see changes in your physique, you need to choose exercises that can realistically be made a part of your life long term. Quick intense weight loss programs do not last long, you will gain the fat back. It's because these can't easily be made into habits, and habits are important. Just like picking up a new habit for anything else, it takes time for the pathways in your brain to decide that a new action is performed enough to change shape to suit it. Same with muscles. Busting your ass for one day will not make them grow because they will not ''think'' it's an activity that will be repeated until you DO repeat it, and they will only repair, not improve. This is actual biology.
You have to put repeated stress on your body for it to change, so picking workouts or exercises that you like and can do regularly with comfort for long periods will have the greatest amount of change in you, both emotionally and physically. It will make you feel better. It will force your body to perform metabolic processes, which make it take care of itself, and a healthy body is a happy body, most of the time.
Don't eat fast food too often. It is delicious, and the good taste does release endorphins that make you feel good, but it's a short lived high. CONT.....

Once that wave is gone, the negative consequences of what you ate make you feel bad again. You feel bad because you know you ate poorly, the calorie count is high, your body has to deal with filtering out preservatives and other chemicals through each cell and your kidneys, your pancreas reacts by releasing extreme amounts of insulin to react to the blood sugar spike, which your body stores in its cells and overpacks them, and on and on and on. It might feel better briefly, but in the end it's digging you deeper into the hole that makes you sad in the first place.
Eating healthy doesn't mean eating things that taste bad. If you don't like it, don't eat it. Try many different healthy foods and eat what you enjoy. You need variety. Think of your plate like a rainbow: red is meat, green is veggies, yellow is grains, blue is fruit. Make an even rainbow as often as you can. Meat is NOT bad for you, niether are grains. Its how we eat them and cook them. You can literally live exclusively on red meat if you cook it properly and be perfectly healthy. You will be less healthy if you eat no meat at all.
Eat healthy meat. That means free range chicken (key word free range, not cage free. Free range means chicken has access to pasture and eats its natural OMNIVOROUS diet, not a vegetarian diet with no pasture access.) Eat free range eggs. Eat grass fed beef. Grass is cow's natural food, and it does matter because 'you are what you eat', and if you or the cows don't consume what your body is built to consume, you aren't made of the right stuff. Also, corn feeding cows is literally why E. coli evolved to cause disease. Don't buy store bought ground beef if you can, grind whole cuts at home. Somewhat unrealistic, but it's up to you how you want to eat your meat. I do not judge.
Cook meat thoroughly, don't eat burnt or well done meat. The proteins are so heavily denatured that they are unhealthy for your body. Don't fry your eggs too often.
Choose unsaturated fats. CONT...
#119133 - Ninotori (03/02/2014) [-]
A fat is unsaturated when it has a double bond instead of an extra hydrogen. All this means is that the shape of the molecule is different, so it changes it's characteristics. It's not solid at room temperature, and it's the kind of oils your body likes to use the most. Animal fats are not unhealthy, but limiting them in our diet is wise. We want the meat part because we use it to rebuild our own body, the fat part mostly just tastes good.
Fat is a SECONDARY energy source. We mostly use it when we run out of sugar. The kind of sugar we want is glucose, which does not come from desserts, but fruits and especially veggies.
Cut sugar and salt down when you cook your food. You need less than you think. I promise you this, because I've literally done this, if you eat healthy for long enough, you will find when you try to eat certain junk like fast food, it will literally sicken you. I don't mean you'll never be able to eat it again, but twice in a week will be uncomfortable.
The close to it's natural state something is, the healthier it is for you. We evolved thousands of years ago as hunter gatherers, and we did the most minimal alterations when we ate our food. We made simple bread, ate raw or lightly cooked fruits and veggies, and we cooked our meat over fire. Those of us that have survived living that lifestyle are alive because we suited it. We still do, even thousands of years later. If we deny our evolved state, we will become sick. We can have junk food now and then and thats fine, I do too, but our bodies need what they need no matter how much we might desire otherwise.
So try out veggie pasta. Cook your food more than you buy it pre made. Eat healthy meats. Switch butter for oils. Put in 1/4-1/2 cup less sugar in your baked goods, you will sincerely not even notice it. Puree spinach and mix it in soups, sauces, and even baked good batter! You can't fucken taste it at all. Save junk food for parties, movie nights, bad days, busy days, and fun. CONT..

To be happy beyond diet and exercise, include good sleep.
We literally do not even know why we need sleep. We do know that shit happens when we don't get enough, shit we don't even understand. It's a really bad idea to give up sleep for anything frequently, we need it. Get used to a specific sleep time, whenever tht is, and shoot for 8 hours. If you wake up sooner than you expected but you feel awake, sit up, don't go back to sleep. If you don't want to go back to sleep really really strongly within a hour or two, stay up. Go to bed when you're tired, don't stay up.
Do things that return a positive. A positive will give a positive back, like multiplication. Eat healthy, you will be happy and healthy too. Giving to others in need promotes good feelings and can even get addictive. Anything can be addictive, which makes creating positive behaviors easier. Pick up a new hobby, excelling at something is a really good way to be tangibly successful, so you KNOW you are being awesome and can feel good accordingly. Don't surround yourself with negative people, or negative things. If you have friends who suck the life out of you, stay away from them, or break it off. They are not part of your solution.
Read good news. Watch funny movies. Do things that you love. Do one thing a day at least that makes you feel tremendously happy, AND, AND AND AND, is not a negative life sucking thing. Like junk food makes you feel great, but it's actually bad for you. Like getting drunk and passing out is fun, but also leaves you with a tremendous painful headache and a mess to clean up. Choose more positive things than negative.
Thats how to be happy through health.

When you're working on that, also work on yourself as a person.
Feeling confident and good about yourself comes from liking yourself, feeling comfortable in your own skin, and finding strength in what you DO have, not weakness in what you DON'T have.
If you don't like something about yourself, it's perfectly ok to change it. Don't like your haircut? Change it. Don't like the way you walk? Change it. Don't like the way you speak, or dress, or act, or smile? You can change it. You are your own blank canvas, you can paint whatever the hell you want and the opinions of others be damned. Not completely damned, you do have to accept the consequences of your choices, but not every reaction is bad, nor is everybody's opinion worth listening to. You can't please everyone, and if you try, you are only hurting yourself. Please the people who MATTER.
Explore how you WANT to look. If your appearance doesn't match what you wish you looked like, make steps to be that person. At the same time, make sure the person you wish you were is realistic. No matter how much makeup or liposuction or whatever I do tonight, tomorrow morning, I will not be Catherine Zeta Jones. But I can be a really hot version of me! Being attractive is about being the best YOU you can be. Find out what kind of 'you' you can make that you like, and take those steps. For me, it's planning out tattoos, piercings, clothes, and hairstyles I like, while being active and staying fit to be a good shape. Don't let people tell you that you are ugly based on their standards. Everyone's opinion of ugly is very different.
Depression is a hard thing, whether it's clinical or not. But you can take steps to weaken it. Improve your patience if you can. Take deep breaths when you're impatient, and try to strengthen your ability to wait for delayed gratification. Plan out things you dream about, even if they are a long time off. They can happen, and probably will, so long as you aren't being lazy and not trying. CONT...

Save pictures of things you like, or want. Keep wishlists of things you sincerely want to buy, even if you can't buy them yet. Save a planned amount of money regularly, and in time, you'll have those things.
If you want something to be good and work out, study it. Study relationships, school, driving, cleaning, parenting, good hair care, skin care, fashion, whatever you want to be good at, just go be good at it. There is nothing you CAN'T be good it if you want to, some things might just come easier than others. That's ok.
Point being, in general, your enforcement of being sluggish is making you sad and sluggish. You felt sluggish, and you let it be, and so it just got to be more and more and more, and now your body and mind have altered to support it. Getting up, and forcing yourself to make changes to habits that reinforce positive, happy, strengthening behaviors instead will change your body and mind to support those behaviors. Sometimes being happy is about acting happy, as weird as that sounds.
If I can describe it this way, your brain reacts because it's stimulated by something. If you stimulate it with behaviors that say "sad", it responds by putting out a reaction that means "sad". If you stimulate it with things that say "happy", it responds with "happy". Just like if you stab your hand on a pineapple, your brain responds with pain, if you do things that are happy, good, and non-harmful, you're brain responds with feelings accordingly.

Stay away from fast food, that will make you sleepy and sluggish. You should also stay away from soda, caffeine and large amounts of sugar because that will also tire you. Constant exercise also helps you sleep well, which helps because right now you probably are pretty restless every night from the diet you are on. Another thing you should do is find exercise activities that YOU enjoy. Not everybody likes to just run on a treadmill for a half hour a day.

I've been working out for a few months (mostly lifting but I'm starting cardio at the gym this month) and I certainly feel a lot better than I used to. I look better and so I also feel more confident and I just generally feel better about myself because I know that I am doing something to improve me as a person.
#119045 - alexanderburns (03/01/2014) [-]
I say try running (again?). Just do it more than once, and make sure you have a goal (just running a little farther than last time is a good one). I don't know anyone who didn't feel like quitting after the first day. You just have to force yourself to go for a bit until you have absolutely no doubt about how you feel. It's case by case; no one else's opinion is really valid in this situation.

even billionaires have miserable lives, money doesn't magically make existence less depressing, all that depends on the social environment and I think that the west is not the wealthiest in terms of community spirit
