How working out helps YOU to battle Depression

Research done by the Mayo Clinic in Rochester,Minn. seem to suggest that one way to battle depression is through working out. The reasons are not fully understood but seem to lead to the fact that exercise increases production of certain neurotransmitters like dopamine (feel good brain chemical) as well as endorphins. It is also shown to perhaps decrease the amount of cortisol (a stress chemical) in your body which has the double effect of calming one down allowing you to sleep better at night, who doesn't want that and reducing unwanted BODY FAT.

Start the Day with a GOOD morning workout!

Don't even get me started about the huge increase in SELF CONFIDENCE that comes with working out, whether it be to fit into that new dress, see your feet again from loss of belly fat or break a personal record on the treadmill exercise just makes a person feel darn GOOD. Just ask anybody you see who you might consider a "gym regular" or daily runner why they workout so much, most will probably say they don't know "it just feels good". The studies show that a moderate program of 30 minutes a day, four to five days a week of exercise is sufficient to help with depression, so if you are just starting out take it easy and work your way up. Also seek advice from a knowledgeable source about what exercises are best for beginners.
