I have had a clinical depression for 11 months. Stille not renoveren. Gained 18 kg due to medication and inactivity. I neem motivation and guidance not to give in to the depression.
Exercise in the long run (once you have gotten into it that is) will help you with the depression more than tablets or counsellor can...
The hardest part is sticking to it, at the start it can feel like your abusing yourself as your notused to it but it will subside and you will notice mental changes a drive to beat your depression it cant beat you in the gym or while exercising...only when you stop going!
