Many people may think it’s necessary to exercise heavily daily to prevent depression, but this isn’t exactly true. Previous studies have found that even a small amount of regular exercise protects adults against future depression. It’s important to note that the type of physical activity has a broad range. The type of exercise can be as simple as walking, if the person is moving around more than they usually do. Although more testing still needs to be done, it may generally be easier and healthier for a person to start exercising, rather than take medicine, to decrease risk of depression. When will you start your weekly walk?
