Whether you’ve experienced it or not, the runner’s high—that feeling of elation that comes over many athletes while logging miles—is real. Experts believe it has evolutionary roots; our ancestors needed that biological motivation to pick up the pace when they had to chase down their dinner. But if jogging isn’t your thing, you can still experience the feel-good vibes, because it’s not specifically the running that gets you “high.” Any form of physical activity can trigger that rush of pain-killing, pleasure-inducing endorphins. And the benefits are both plentiful and holistic, encompassing the physical and, perhaps even more important right now, the mental. Science shows time and again that regular exercise can help lift mood, raise energy, regulate stress, enhance brain clarity, boost libido, and even help with depression and anxiety.


Here we’ve gathered some of our favorite ways to move your way to a better state of mind. Though some require a subscription for full access, many are free, donation-based, or offering free online classes on YouTube or Instagram Live at select times. All can be done with little to no equipment in your living room, backyard, rooftop, or whatever space has become your gym in these homebound times. Our advice? Choose the one that brings you joy, and make sure to carve out some time for it each day (anywhere from a quick 20 minutes to a leisurely hour—it all counts). Then turn up some tunes, get out of your head, and get into your body.
