Exercise More To Beat Depression

A recent study published by Translational Psychiatry is further proving that there is a strong connection between the mind and body -- exercising and meditating can reduce the symptoms of depression.

The study consisted of a group of men and women over an eight-week period from Rutgers University, 22 participants suffering from depression and 30 mentally healthy participants. Researchers had each participant start with 30 minutes of meditation followed by 30 minutes of aerobic exercise. Participants were also told that if their thoughts drifted to past events during the workout that they should refocus their breathing.
