Exercise Alleviates Depression

Posted by Jennifer (The RD)

Over the past few weeks, I have been extremely busy.  I was working double shifts at my first job on some nights but would still have to go to job # 2 on other nights.  It was grueling.  I had little sleep on some days, but knew that I still had to get my exercise in, because without exercise, I always seem to feel a little “off.”  So, I got on the treadmill and continued with my routine, no matter how late I got home.  However, my poor best friend Kasper (above) was not so lucky.  I had to have my mom and dad pick him up and take care of him since I was gone for so many hours.  He also missed out on his walks, which I am sure he was not happy about.  I noticed that the poor guy just wasn’t as happy as he usually is, as you can see in the picture above.  It was interesting to see that lack of exercise seemed to have affected my dog the same way it affects me.  So, the moral of the story is that exercise is a very important “mood booster.”  Actually, it is now a recognized form of therapy for depression.  So, keep on exercising because it not only makes your heart happy, but it is also important for our mental health!

I am almost embarrassed to post my almost non-existent workout schedule. This is my last week before finals week, so two more weeks. I have a 20-page paper due and 3 finals next week, so that is where all my focus and energy are for now. I am counting the days to summer break. Wish me luck! 🙂

Sneaking in Exercise

Posted by Jennifer (the student) 

 

Some days are just to busy for a traditional hour-long workout. Doing something is better than nothing at all. Here are a few was to add some extra activity to your day.

  •  Wake up 30 minutes early and go for a run or walk.
  • Replace your desk chair with an exercise ball.
  • Walk the dog.
  • Walk or bike to work or running errands.
  • Do house work and yard work.
  • Count your steps with a pedometer (aim for 10,000 a day)
  • While watching TV do strength training exercises or walk on a treadmill.
  • When meeting friends go for a walk, window shop, go dancing.

Try to make activity part of your life and make it fun.

Let me know what you do to stay active. 🙂
