Hello All, today we are going to discuss, can exercise help with depression.
As you probably know, depression is a mood disorder that affects millions
Of people every year. It’s something that needs to be talked about a lot more.
It can have serious consequences if left unchecked.
A big symptom of being depressed is lethargy. It can make you want to sleep all the time.
A lot in my case. I just never seem to want to do anything. I have no motivation
At all to do anything.
Doing exercise every day is a real effort, I have to force myself to do it.
I feel so much better when I have though, you get a real sense of accomplishment
It helps greatly with your mood and it lifts you up to help you face your day.
It gives you a feel good factor.
What type of exercises.
Do an exercise that you enjoy, that way it will help motivate you to get started.
The start is the hardest part because of what you are going through.
If you can get yourself to just do 5 minutes in the beginning that will soon lead
To 10 and than 15 and so on.
The chemicals in your brain will change when exercising and this helps you to feel
Much more positive.
It is also very good for the rest of your body and your general health.
Me I like to walk and do low impact exercises, you can find some free videos on YouTube
Tablets or exercise.
This is a good question, while Antidepressants have there place and many thousands
Of people take them around the world, exercising can make you feel just as good if you do it on a regular basis.
Some people find more benefits from doing the walking, the jogging, yoga, working out at home or going to The Gym.
You can take vitamins and other natural remedies as well, you must do what makes you feel better.
Some types of depression are very hard to treat, always speak to your doctor about what will
be best for your particular condition.
How long do I have to do it for.
There are no hard and fast rules on this, you can walk for 20 minutes a day 3-4 times a week then on the other days maybe do some aerobics or anything that takes your fancy.Maybe you like to go jogging or do some dancing to your favorite music.As, long as you do something most days you will see a huge difference in the way you feel.
Housework is considered exercise, hoovering, pegging washing up, making the beds are all
types of physical activity.
Going out and doing the garden, cutting the grass with a lawn mower, weeding, planting and watering.
There are so many things you can do. let me know what exercises you like to do?
There are a lot of people in the medical profession who prescribe exercise before they dish out medication.This means there is definitely something to it. The body releases endorphins when you are active and that gives you an all natural high.There is nothing to say you can’t take tablets and exercise as this could make the issue go away soonerand if you continue with the physical exercise it could help it not to come back again.
