Exercise Combats Depression

Posted: 05.27.2015

 Exercising regularly can help reduce the risk of depression, according to the latest evidence in JAMA Psychiatry.  A British study tracked about 11,000 people for 25 years and found that those who were physically active were less likely to exhibit symptoms of depression.  Also, sedentary participants who began exercising three times a week reduced their risk of depression five years later by 20%.  Having trouble getting active?  Try starting with a short 15-minute walk 15 to 30 minutes after dinner.  This can also aid digestion and help improve blood sugar levels.
