Exercise for Depression

A regular exercise or movement routine can be very helpful in improving mood.

Regular Routines

The best strategy when using exercise to decrease stress is to have a regular (3-5 times a week) exercise routine. This can be walking daily, attending fitness classes, gardening, biking or many other physical pursuits. The exercise or movement can be a quiet walk alone in nature or a wild dance aerobics class. The key is doing it regularly.
