EXERCISE AS A TREATMENT FOR DEPRESSION PART 3

Something to consider the next time you are debating whether to exercise is this:

Studies on exercise and depression show that non-exercising individuals are more likely to show depression. In comparison, those who exercised a total of an hour or more every week are 44% less likely to become depressed.

For those who think that the negative thoughts and apprehension they feel towards exercise will offset any health benefits, note that even light exercise such as walking, stretching, swimming, or other simple aerobics can drastically help with depression.

The risk of cardiovascular disease is also reduced with simple physical activity, so the benefits of light exercise will also help to maintain a healthy heart, circulation, and overall mood.

So remember: a small dose of exercise can make a lasting difference in health and happiness.
