From Greek: endo (ενδο) = within and Morpheus (Μορφέας) God of dreams.
So we're dealing with the dreams within us, but actually it relates more to a pharmacological activity in our body that is triggered by neurotransmitters.

Why this is important for me today?

Because we writer's shouldn't forget that exercise and the outside world is just as important. We shouldn't underestimate the power of endorphins. Whenever I come home from yoga or a good workout or maybe just a swim, I feel much more productive. It's like a rush, especially when I had some sugar. I would call this a sugar-endorphin rush.

Also, I wanted to know if you get the same feelings when you start dating someone. Do you get endorphin rushes?

    This is so true. Sometimes I ban myself from writing and use the time to stretch, exercise, get out more. It's really nice, and actually helps my mind flow better.

    I have to get up and move around, go outside and weed or something else I would become a kind of wraith.

    I really need to get back on the boat and exercise more. It's been a spell and I could stand to gain some of those powerful endorphins.

    It's been a long (really, really long) time since I dated, but I know my morning workouts get the endorphins going. If only I could stay home and write after them instead of going to work...

    Thanks for sharing!

    I've taken on a exercise regime to offset my time sitting and blogging.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Endorphins and I live far apart. I'm not in shape enough to experience any sort of euphoria from exercise. I'm trying, but I still just feel utterly sore and exhausted after exercising and all I want to to do after a workout is go to sleep.

    When I'm dating someone there is a rush and if exercise will ever bring me that same feeling, I'd do it more.

    I always get the Endorphin rush when I meet someone new and we have that spark between us. I also get it when I practice Yoga every morning and after dancing too, I love this feeling! :) Of course it is important coz the other things I do all day are sitting and reading or writing.

    I have this endorphin rush in very different situations...before I meet my boyfriend, before a job presentation, snowboarding, diving, good golfing round, before a doctor´s appointment, christmas, birthdays....a looooong list...However, I love to get them ;-) but who doesn´t...
