Jog Your Way To Better Health

A Step In The Right Direction

Exercising helps depression by increasing the levels of neurotransmitters Рdopamine, norepinephrine and serotonin. Did you know that 17 to 20 million Americans are affected annually by depression? Exercise is proven to be more successful at recovering from depression than medication. Start fighting depression by jogging your way to a healthier mind.

People who exercise for 2.5 to 7.5 hours per week have the largest mental health difference. However, when you exercise for more than 7.5 hours a week, there is an increased likelihood of being depressed and having anxiety. Keep this in mind when you are planning your exercise routine. Also, remember to mix up your activities Рtry jogging, doing aerobics, weight lifting and cross training throughout the week.
