Depression is a subject I have personally dealt with so it’s time to talk about it.
We all know exercise is good for the body, but it also has many benefits for your mental health too. Research shows that no matter the age or fitness level, regular exercise can be a great tool for your mental health.
Researchers have found that regular exercise can be just as effective as medication (without side effects) in relieving mild to moderate depression. Continuing your fitness path may also prevent a relapse.
The main reason exercise works for depression and mental illness is because, exercise boosts endorphins in the brain, and they make you feel good and energized.
