Exercise Can Help With Depression. But..
I do find this a bit disturbing and it will be awful for those with depression to read and should be more balanced out (although the interview with a man who has had depression, which is on the same page, is worth a listen), but in my experience (I developed an anxiety disorder last year), it has, apart from the odd occasion, helped a great deal but exercise should not be seen as a cure in itself but as a significant part of a cure. Regular 7 1/2 to 8 hours sleep, taking up an interest in a hobby, regular contact with people and not spending too much time alone, all play their part
