A number of studies have found that exercise helps depression. There are many views as to how exercise helps people with depression:
Exercise may block negative thoughts or distract you from daily worries.
Increased fitness may lift your mood and improve your sleep patterns.
Exercise may also change levels of chemicals in your brain, such as serotonin, endorphins and stress hormones.
Furthermore, physical activity reduces the risk of mental disorders including depression, cognitive decline and dementia. It also improves self-perception of mental wellbeing, increases self-esteem, lowers the likelihood of sleep disorders and enables a better ability to cope with stress. Stay Healthy and Stay Well!
