Adrenaline: It’s Good For You.
Adrenaline is something that washes over our bodies in a huge wave and releases large amounts of epinephrine. This is a hormone that essentially increases the circulation of blood to your muscles and brain. When the rush starts to happen, your heart will start beating faster, and you will experience excitement, fear, nerves, trepidation, and exhilaration.
Sometimes in life, we crave a bit of adrenaline because maybe we’re not getting enough excitement. So here are a few examples of how you can bring some into your life.
If you perform high-intensity exercises, they will kickstart your adrenal glands. This is because certain exercises put a slight stress on the body, so you produce higher levels of epinephrine. Having said that, it’s important you don’t overo this too much; otherwise, you can send your body into overdrive.
Climb up the mountains
Whether you decide to trek up a steep hill with your bare feet, or you hop in a truck and try a little rock crawling with vehicles from 10trailtrucks, the act itself will push you to get that rush because of the high altitude and difficulty. They trigger the release of epinephrine production, but without having to put too much stress onto any adrenal glands.
Fun trips out
Take time out to plan a trip full of exciting activities like skydiving, white water rafting, or even a day out at an amusement park and go on all the fast and scary rides. These will cause you to feel slightly fearful but also exhilarated, which is an absolute natural form of defense that your mind creates, and that then produces more epinephrine.
Participate in sports
The good thing about sports is that you not only get fit and active, but you are also made to work with other people as a team, and this in itself has its own benefits. But another thing about it is there are often competitions that include spectators, and this plays a big role in having your body release the epinephrine hormone because you are being put under pressure to perform well. Along with feeling excited and ready to win.
Fall in love
Without sounding all romantic, falling in love is an amazing feeling, because it’s delving into the unknown with someone that you care for. You’re accepting your emotions even though you don’t know what the future holds. Your heart will race, and you will experience a feeling of euphoria. This then creates adrenaline, along with many other hormones too, that all essentially make you feel on top of the world.
So as you can see, there are plenty of ways that you can trigger that incredible hormone to release itself. It all just depends on what you’re comfortable doing. But any kind of option to cause adrenaline to show up will always involve a certain amount of risk, whether that be a physical one or a mental one. So think about what you want to do, and then enjoy that rush that your body will receive.
