The Benefits of Exercise

Physical activity stimulates brain chemicals that leave you happier and more relaxed. You’ll also look andfeel better with regular exercise, which can boost confidence and self-esteem.

When you exercise, your body releases chemicals called endorphins.

Endorphins trigger a positive feeling in the body that is energizing and can improve your outlook on life.

Endorphins act as analgesics and sedatives. This means they decrease the sensation of pain and help you sleep.

Regular physical activity can help prevent depression.

Is Exercise a Treatment for Clinical Depression?

Research has shown that exercise is an effective but often underused treatment for mild to moderate depression. Any form of exercise can help.
