Workouts Can Help Depression

Forbes.com has an article on suggesting that exercises such as workouts or jogging can help beating the depression. On the recent study:

Blumenthal was lead author on a much-publicized study released five years ago that found that just ten months of regular, moderate exercise outperformed a leading antidepressant (Zoloft) in easing symptoms in young adults diagnosed with moderate to severe depression.

And another study released earlier this year, by researchers at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas, found that 30-minute aerobic workouts done three to five times a week cut depressive symptoms by 50% in young adults.

It may be related to the chemicals, endorphins, is released in the blood stream during and after exercise.

Sarah Frayne also did a paper on similar topic.

By no mean this is any type of advice, but it gives another reason to do regular exercise.
