License to sit on my tushy

A recent Dutch study found that exercise isn't an effective antidepressant. Rather, people who are genetically prone to exercise are less likely to develop mental disorders. It seems activity level is genetically, rather than environmentally, determined, and correlates with less depression but doesn't cause it. Always an important distinction.

    HA.
    That's all I have to say.
    But I still hope my new exercise program helps me mentally as well as physically...

  2. Forgot about this post. A number of studies HAVE found that exercise is an effective antidepressant. I'm hoping the knee treatment will succeed so I can exercise more. I encourage you to exercise too!
