Ever wonder why laughter, medication, and exercise have the power to improve your mood? This video explains why that is and it all has to do with Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF).

And I decided to share it with each of you because it was one of the coolest things I learned at the conference!

So if you are interested in your brain, your mood, or exercise I'm pretty sure you'll enjoy this vlog! How does exercise impact your mood?
