M.Are you really happy when you are so exhausted that you can’t even pronounce the term “life satisfaction”? To answer these questions, a Chinese research team evaluated the current study situation – and in some cases unearthed some amazing things.
The widely propagated formula “running without breathing” does not ensure the greatest satisfaction – for example, very relaxed jogging. It is true that the athlete does not suffer so much from loss of strength, exhaustion or breathlessness during such less strenuous activities. “But in the long term, anaerobic activities raise the mood more,” emphasizes study director John Chan from Shenzhen University.
