Studies show that 1 out of every 10 Americans is experiencing some level of depression. If you feel depressed instead of gambling with dangerous antidepressant pills, try an all-natural approach with resistance training. A recent study at Harvard Medical School has proven that this type of exercise can ease depression because it releases endorphins. Endorphins are the body’s natural pain killers; they boost self-esteem and can help ease anxiety too. In addition to looking great, regular exercise can improve your mental health as well.
