Research shows that exercise is as effective as antidepressants in cases of mild depression, and can also alleviate anxiety, so get moving!
If you’re on the easy plan, dedicate just 5 minutes today to physical activity–stretching, jumping jacks, go for a walk–don’t hurt yourself, but move!
If you’re physically fit but unmotivated, try the 7 Minute Workout app. Quick, effective, and you don’t have to think about it.
If you’re already physically active, do a full workout and/or spend some time thinking about your workout routine. Do you need to change things up, challenge yourself more? Register for a 5K , half marathon, or new yoga class? Keep yourself challenged, but above all, keep exercising! It’s one of the best things you can do for yourself.
