day 3 of the happy

I first read this last winter and it has stayed with me ever since.  I wanted to remind you all as well this month because I think it's important and has proven true for me.

Just 12 minutes of exercise can make a big difference to your mind and body!

"Exercise not only spurs endorphins, but it can also help stabilize your mood by raising the level of neurotransmitters in the brain.  Going for a 12 minute walk may be the natural equivalent of taking Prozac, says John Ratey, M.D., an associate clinical professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and the author of Spark: The Revolutionary New Science of Exercise and the Brain."

Do you have 12 minutes?
