Exercise can be a helpful non-medical intervention in many individuals struggling with depression. Although the data is mixed regarding the efficacy of exercise in helping depression, anecdotally it certainly does seem to help people who are undergoing other treatments for depression at the same time. I usually recommend a minimum of 30 minutes of intense cardiovascular exercise three days a week to start, obviously assuming that a person is capable from a medical standpoint of engaging in that level of exercise. Before you start any program of exercise, always important to clear it with your primary doctor as well.
