🔶Exercise can have an enormous impact on your mood. In fact, it is thought that exercise can be just as effective as anti-depressants in treating mild to moderate depression.
🔶Exercise helps chronic depression by increasing serotonin - which helps your brain regulate mood, sleep and appetite.
🔶By exercising you increase your level of endorphins, which are natural mood lifters and enhancers!
🔶Some recent studies have found people report a higher level of vitality, enthusiasm, pleasure and self-esteem, and a lower level of tension, depression and fatigue, after they have walked outside.
🔶People who exercise outside also say they are more likely to exercise again than those who stay indoors.
So - you know what to do, pop your runners on and head outdoors - it doesn't cost you a thing! 🏃🌳
