If you are having trouble finding the "why" for existing in this world, you must be depressed. If you are suffering greatly from depression, then you ought to know that exercise is the answer to it, academics say.

Depression has already been a thought of the past. Even then, it is still noted to be very rampant in the modern age, an age enamored by technological feats. Depression is relative across cultures, races, ethnicities, etc. By these facts, an all-new research sprouted- physical empowerment through exercise gives depression a good kiss in the cheek goodbye.

Three studies from notable academics and scientists, published in separate months February, June and September, all redound to exercise as a preventive measure for possible diseases. The possible diseases, according these collective journals, are by any means, consequences of depression.

In the Neuroscience and Biobehavioral Reviews published in February, the researchers were able to draw patterns out from 20 past studies, revealing that exercise greatly affect physical tissues in the body. And, such tissues happen to be affected by stress and depression such that inflammation of the cells had long affected by brain health in a massive proportion.

In the Journal of Psychiatric Research published in June, methods involving exercises were introduced. Later on, comparisons were made and an observation was recorded between how exercise greatly affected the moods and how depression generally downsizes them into a single gloominess.

The Journal on Preventive Medicine which was published in September proved to be the most innovative of the studies. Generally, the study relied on measurements anchored on the same issue. In the study therein, fluctuations in the body were monitored whenever exercise routines are maintained or left out in the middle of the depression.

Altogether, the studies were able to contain and analyze data on more than 1,140,000 adult men and women. The highlight of the collective journals henceforth is the presentation of exercise as a preventive measure for disease-inducing depressions, NY Times reported.

"For now, just know that if you're having a terrible day, going on a run or signing up for a workout class will definitely help. Science and the academics say so", Elle stated.
