Being in a bad mood or even feeling depressed?

Start exercising!

Exercises produce a “happiness hormone” called serotonin in the brain, which is seen as an important mood regulator. Exercises can have the same affect as anti-depression drugs, and in mild depression are even more recommended than taking pills.

North Lincolnshire Mental Health Service`s research shows that 83% of people with mental health problems, had an improvement in their mood. after exercising!

So if physical activity helps people even with illness diagnoses, it should help you!

The British Journal of Sports Medicine found that even 20 minutes per week of moderate exercise including housework helps people keep positive mood. But the best results come from exercising 3 hours every week or 30 minutes daily.
