Can exercise help with menopausal depression?
(Beat Menopause Weight Gain)
Yes, it really can.
I used to hate exercise, but gradually go into it once I'd passed my 50th birthday - I knew I needed to get fitter and keep a grip on my weight.
Gradually though, exercise got a grip on me. It simply makes me feel better, body and mind, and the science backs it up. It's been shown that exercise can help to relieve mild to moderate depression as effectively as an antidepressant. And it has loads of other health benefits, giving you stronger bones, a healthier heart and, of course, helping you avoid menopausal weight gain.
Top of my list of 'things to do when you're feeling blue' is this: 'get out of doors and get active'. It really works, so if you have a lurking sense of depression, read more about exercise and depression
and make up your mind to get more exercise into your life, starting today.
