Exercise and not as likely to be depressed

The New Reasons To Exercise (series)

4/ IT MAY STAVE OFF DEPRESSION

Working out regularly might prevent depression, not just assuage it, according to a study published in February 2015.  Researchers looked at 10 years’ worth of data and found that women who were meeting the current guidelines for exercise – 2 hours and 30 minutes a week of moderate-intensity exercise – reported about 50% fewer depressive symptoms than women who didn’t exercise as much.  And the more the women reported exercising the less likely they were to have signs of depression.

O’Connor of the department of kinesiology at the University of Georgia.

2/ IT IMPROVES MEMORY

For more than a decade, researchers have connected exercise to better brain health over time.  But a new study found that just a single session of exercise can improve memory retention in the hours that follow.  The report, published in the journal Current Biology, suggests that exercising four hours after learning a task can help people remember that task over the long term.  Experts speculate that exercise triggers the release of neurotransmitters in the brain that lead to the creation of certain proteins that encourage memory retention.
