Another Excuse to Skip the Gym Today?

Are you one of those people who will find any excuse to avoid getting in a workout?  Well, this behavior might actually be in your genes.  According to researchers, anywhere from 20% to 60% of physical activity tendencies can be passed down to the next generation.  They found that the genes that control dopamine levels may effect a person's attitude toward exercise, whether they love it or hate it.  Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that effects a person's drive, pleasure, and reward centers of the brain.  So in conjunction with other behavioral traits and social influences there can be an indirect effect on levels of physical activity.

As someone who absolutely loves exercise it made me wonder if there were any genetic links to why that is.  After reading about the study it makes a lot of sense that it would be related to neurotransmitters that effect mood and motivation.  I've grown to love it so much because it's an escape, or an outlet, to clear things from my mind that are bothering me and to release negative feelings..

  1. Appreciation is the key to doing more that is why I have took some time out to thank some one who cured me of my 2 years HEPATITIS B problem. It became a major problem to me as it was affecting my marital life and I was no longer comfortable so I decided to look for a solution and I came across a post of Dr Ariba and how he has been helping people of the same problem I contacted him and told him all I have been facing in my life. He told me how to get his product and how to take it after every thing I find out that all was now okay with me and that my HEPATITIS B problem was gone that is why I have come out today to say thank you to him . if you need cure for HIV/AIDS, Herpes, cancer or diabetes of all types you can contact his email OR
