A regular exercise routine is just as effective as antidepressants in treating anxiety and mood disorders.  Physically active people have lower rates of anxiety and depression than sedentary people with activity producing a positive effect on brain chemicals associated with stress, anxiety and depression. Exercise triggers a release of dopamine and serotonin, which can improve mood.

Getting healthy by eating nutritious food in the right amounts, getting enough sleep, and regularly exercising allows the body to work as it should by enabling health down to the cellular level.  Hormones balance, toxins and waste products are more efficiently flushed from the cells, including the brain cells.  Increased blood flow and restorative hormones optimize body and brain function.

Regular exercise improves body image and leads to a sense of accomplishment which can improve depression symptoms.  Exercise also enhances energy levels and aids in realizing better sleep. Exercise increases the blood supply to the brain and promotes the growth of new neurons (adult neurogenesis) in the hippocampus, a brain area that is essential for learning and memory.

Exercise helps maintain cognitive abilities as we age. Physically active elderly people perform better than sedentary elderly people on cognitive tasks such as reasoning, vocabulary, memory and reaction time. Regular exercise can prevent memory-related diseases like Alzheimer's. For people who have already been diagnosed with memory-related diseases, exercise is a commonly recommended intervention.
