Exercise and Depression

Posted on March 28, 2018

"Exercise always helps with my depression. It is actually the only thing that helps get me out of a rut. This is the first step to climb out, looking forward to being motivated about something. Hope everyone has a great day!" - A member on MyDepressionTeam

On MyDepressionTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with depression, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Exercise is one of the most discussed topics.

Here are a few question-and-answer threads about exercise:

"My doctor and other people say exercise helps with depression, but I'm always tired. Any advice?"
"Does anyone ever feel tired and exhausted despite feeling better psychologically?"

"How do people deal with weight gain while on treatment?"

Here are some conversations about exercise:

I'm determined to not let these things slow down my activity level, because exercise helps me.

It's amazing what even a little bit of exercise can do to help lift the mood.

I go to hot yoga everyday.

Can you relate?

I belong to a gym that's 5 mins. away but a lot of days/nights I feel I can't leave the house.
