What's The Best Drug Free Anti-Depressant You Already Have?

Want to stay strong, happy and healthy?

Want to Stay Strong, Happy and Healthy Without Medication?

It's no secret that I love to work out.  What may actually be a secret, though, is that one of the reasons I do it 4-6 times each week, is literally for my own sanity!  There is a history of depression in my family and I like to fight mine with the most natural remedy I have found that you and I both already have...our bodies!  When we use our bodies to get up off the coach and exercise, I promise you will feel better.

Feeling Down But Hate Meds?

Obviously I am not a doctor but I certainly know how I feel after my endorphins kick in during a workout.  The endorphin rush is one of the reasons I try to get my workouts done in the am.  It is an awesome way to start the day when I am soooo not a morning person because it makes me feel like I actually CAN make it through the day and feel awesome.
"If you haven’t exercised in a while, the thought of slipping into a pair of tight pants and a sports bra might seem depressing in itself. Exercise, however, has been shown to be more effective than many antidepressants in reducing major depression. And it has the same kind of effect on less serious mood issues, too." - Mehmet Oz, MD
No Kidding This Works...Try It!

Especially when you pair exercise with eating healthy, whole foods at frequent intervals throughout the day, you will find that your mood will stay lifted and every area of your life will benefit.  There has even been research that suggests exercise not only lifts a mood, but increased brain function in important areas such as memory, productivity and focus as well.

So seriously, what are you waiting for?  Get your booty moving and feel better today.
