Take to physical fitness, keep depression away

Idle man’s mind is a devil’s workshop, a saying it is as old as time itself. But whoever has said this should have been really wise, for he would have known that mind without work and exercise is an abode of problems.
Give your body no work, it will grow beyond proportions and complicate physical wellbeing. Leaving no work for our mind will also have the same result. Anxiety, panic and depression may be the result if we don’t tune our mind.
Good idea would be to tune in both body and mind. Common mental health problems, such as depression and anxiety, are a growing global issue. Anxiety, panic and depression is very debiliating.
They drain our energy and make it more difficult to get on with life and do the things we need to. When severe, anxiety and depression can seriously cripple a person’s ability to lead a meaningful life.
When we look at the causes of anxiety and depression our thinking processes are often part of the problem. Anxiety becomes habitual when we spend too much time having worrying and frightening thoughts. Our body gets into very alert and vigilent state. This means our body is being flooded with the types of hormones, which makes it even more likely that we think anxious thoughts.
The experts who took up a recent study found that cardiorespiratory fitness
might be an effective intervention.
Low physical activity is associated with a greater incidence of common
mental health disorders. According to an eminent researcher, Kondola,
‘exercise is the biggest determinant of cardiorespiratory fitness. Physical exertion and an active lifestyle can improve self-image and trigger the release of chemicals in the brain that stimulate positive emotions.
So the best way to stay fit is to exercise regularly, this will keep mental and physical health intact. Afterall someone did not say ‘sound mind in a sound body,’ just like that.
