If you really want to rev up your mood, you should exercise. This is not an issue of vanity, but rather it will promote your mental as well as physical health. What happens when you exercise? Your pulse rises and the supply of blood and oxygen to your muscles increases. As a result endorphin levels rise and this has a calming effect as well as improving feelings of well-being. If you exercise over an extended period of time, body fat will begin to burn and instead of feeling tired you feel energized.
The benefits of regular exercise include the following:
Exercise gives us an increased sense of control over our lives and helps prevent the negative thoughts inherent in depression.*
