Regular physical exercise good for mental health too

Filed under: ,

Are you a fan of regular physical exercise? If so, is it vigorous? I'm talking 45 minutes on a stairmaster or maybe half an hour on an elliptical? If so, you probably are making your heart extremely healthy while also ensuring your mental health is in top form.

Recent research states that those who indulged in regular vigorous exercise were less likely to develop depression or an anxiety disorder over time. Maybe there really is a mind and body connection!

Rigorous exercise is great just for the physical health benefits alone, but if the mental healthy benefits of the future are also to be gained, there's nothing to lose at all. Well, except some weight, maybe.
