Something I just read reminded me of how people talk about exercise giving them an endorphin high, and I just don't get it. I have exercised before, many times unfortunately, and I have never in my life experienced an endorphin high. Exercise just makes me feel like shit, all gross and sweaty and in pain and not feeling good at all. So I have no idea at all what an endorphin high is even supposed to feel like, or if I do, I've never gotten one from exercise of any kind. Which kinda makes me feel a little like those people who can't derive any pleasure from eating, it's just something they do because they have to. (This being different from depression caused food anhedonia; these people were just born with food anhedonia.)
But yeah, I kinda feel like people just say exercise causes an endorphin high to trick people into wanting to exercise in search for said high.
