Less than half an hour of exercise a day helps treat depression...

"Just 25 minutes of vigorous daily exercise can help beat depression, claim doctors"....according to a recent article in the Telegraph online. 

It continues..."Researchers found that a workout reduces stress and anger and boosts the sense of physical wellbeing. They claim physical exercise should be more widely prescribed as a treatment to tackle depressive or anxiety disorders."

"Exercise appears to affect, like an antidepressant, particular neurotransmitter systems in the brain, and it helps patients with depression re-establish positive behaviours."
