So much is said about the physical and anti-aging benefits of exercise. But what about the mental benefits? Is this not just as important?
Tragically, an estimated 1 in 10 Americans suffer from depression, and anxiety disorders affect about 40 million people. The enormity of this problem is reflected in how many people use psychotropic medications to treat these disorders.
Why not try exercise? Exercise effectively benefits mood and mental health and can play a key role in alleviating anxiety and depression, without negative side effects (but many positive ones!).
Just ask most people WHY they exercise, most of them will tell you “I just feel better!”. To learn more about anxiety, depression and how exercise can help click here http://www.ideafit.com/fitness-library/train-yourself-happy
