Many experts now believe that regular exercise can help prevent and even “treat” depression.
There may be a number of reasons for this:
- Exercise can enhance production of “mood-elevating” brain chemicals such as serotonin and endorphins.
- Sticking to an exercise plan and seeing positive results can give us a sense of accomplishment.
- Exercise can be a social experience that helps counter feelings of isolation. Group exercise classes, working out with a friend or taking lessons in a sport (e.g., tennis, skiing) can offer emotional as well as physical rewards.
