Exercise May Chase Away Depression

Jupiter Images/Thinkstock

Exercise may help fight depression, according to a review of previous studies. Compared with therapy or medications, an exercise routine worked about the same in treating depression symptoms, the authors of the study say. People with diabetes are at an increased risk for depression, and some depression medications may worsen blood glucose levels or increase weight. This study suggests that exercise may be an effective alternative to conventional approaches for dealing with depression.
