Increased Life Expectancy

A number of different studies have found that exercise assists with alleviating the symptoms of depression. There are countless views as to how exercise helps people with depression. Some of these are:

  • Exercise may block negative thoughts or, alternatively, distract you from daily worries.
  • Exercising with others offers an opportunity for increased social contact.
  • Increased fitness may lift your mood as well as improve your sleep patterns.
  • In addition, exercise may change levels of chemicals in your brain, such as serotonin, endorphins in addition to stress hormones.

Just move a little bit more, with increased levels of intensity, and sit less. You don’t have to make huge life changes in order to see the benefits. Just start building increased levels of activity into your day, one step at a time.
