  1. Hi Sarah,

    It’s all well and good giving us an infographic but for those of us with less than perfect eyesight the resolution needs to be good enough for it to be able to be magnified and still be readable, please!

    Cheers
    Sue

    • Hi Sue
      Good point … no idea how to improve the size from this end as the link is provided as is from healthcentral. Can you increase the screen size?? When I do that I it doesn’t loose too much resolution…
      Hope I didn’t give either you or Jim a headache 😉

  2. Hi to all with poor eyesight.
    On the web page use the “Ctrl” Key and the + or – key to zoom the web page

  3. I knew there was a link. I was blessed with a TBI 4 years ago and currently still dealing with my chronic depression. I have found to be real happy going out for a bike ride on my tricycle and at the gym. Now that I have read your article, I’m going to go all out on my exercise because I do want that happiness to be not momentarily but long long term! Thank you Sarah!

  4. to enlarge the screen go to te top right hand corner of you screen and fine a symbol of three bars click on that and scroll down a few lines and click on zoom and go as large or as small as you like , remember to go back and put it back to 100 when you finish

  5. A great infographic explanation of the “runners high”. Thank you.
    I have always found exercise – riding my mountain bike – to be the best way to manage the stress associated with a challenging career.
    From the moment I begin to organise my gear, rack my bike on the car and drive to the local trails, my stress levels fade away. And then as soon as I start riding – the sun shining through the trees, the sounds of the birdlife in the distance and gravel crushing under your tyres – the “runners high” begins. At that point nothing else matters – just you, your bike and the winding trail ahead.
