Exercise Lowers the Risk of Suicide and Depression


In a study of over 50 000 people, exercise was related to a lower risk of mental health problems and suicides. Exercise can literally save your life.


Women who do not exercise have a three-fold increased risk of mental health problems like depression.


Jogging twenty to thirty minutes a day, four to five times a week is a powerful brain health tool.


Exercise works similarly to antidepressant medications.


You don't need an expensive membership; get your sneakers, music, and start walking/jogging.

Have fun and enjoy nature!
