When a guy is depressed, his physical activity will suffer too
Fatigue, lethargy, and a general lack of motivation to do anything when you’re depressed can really slow you down.
But just as depression can impact your physical activity, you can use physical activity to fight depression. Researchers have found that establishing a regular exercise routine can actually reduce depression. Physical activity releases brain chemicals that relieve stress, promote alertness, and improve overall mental well-being. It also helps improve self-esteem. With so much to gain and nothing to lose (except for a few extra pounds if you’re carrying them), building physical activity into your daily routine just makes sense.
