DEPRESSED /SAD: EXERCISE !

Unfortunately sadness and depression are a part of life. We cannot escape them! After losing two very dear friends, one in October and another in February, both emotions have been knocking at my door! I fight each one with EXERCISE! Exercise produces endorphins which are produced in the pituitary gland and the hypothalamus during exercise- whether at the gym or while taking a nice walk. Endorphins have the ability to promote a feeling of wellness, a boost in mood and lower rates of depression. If the sadness and depression remain a visit to the MD may be necessary because a chemical imbalance may be at play.
