Feel good – come rain, hail or shine

exercise to boost mental health

Isn’t it amazing how the whole country becomes happy on a sunny day? You could help this become a more regular feeling by doing morning exercise to boost mental health.

While the moods of people noticeably lift during better weather, those who suffer from depression might feel an extra burden to get out and enjoy themselves – a burden that simply makes depressive moods settle in even deeper.

However, there is good news. By starting a daily exercise routine, even as little as minutes per day of vigorous walking or yoga, you can start to boost your mood. In a recent study, adults who did 30 minutes of exercise three times per week over 16 weeks, began to experience the same benefits to their mood that would have been provided by the antidepressant Sertraline. So it goes to show, with daily exercise, you can take a sunny mood along with you, no matter what the weather’s like outside.
