Prevention for anxiety and depression

With our tips we will try to make your brain secrete hormones called endorphins, which are known as "happiness hormones". They are substances that our bodies naturally produce and are responsible for our quality of life. They will make you experience feelings of joy and well-being, and make the muscular and mental tension that make you feel bad disappear.

This feeling of well-being will contribute to the prevention of possible anxiety/depression and/or the relapse of these disorders. For example, chronic pain often makes people feel depressed, but this hormone contributes to you having less pain, increases your immune system, and therefore helps you feel better and stronger.

These tips will also help you increase your ability to face situations that can and do create discomfort.
