Do you wish your life were better and more complete?
Do you wish you could reach a state of health that makes you feel full of energy and happiness?
Good news: science has found a simple but effective way to help you become happier and healthier.
The answer lies in running, which is one of the most basic things people do.
New study, shown at the 36th ECNP Congress in Barcelona, shows that running has a huge amount of potential as a way to fight depression.
Researchers looked at how running and antidepressant drugs worked together, with over 140 people taking part. The results showed that running is an effective way to treat sadness.
People like you who were looking for a way to make their lives better took part in the study. They could choose between taking antidepressants for 16 weeks or going on a group running programme for 16 weeks. The results could change how we think about mental health care.
The people who decided to run over taking medication saw amazing results.
These people found that running, with its closely supervised 45-minute group classes, helped them set personal goals, get in better shape, and make new friends. The effects of these things were big improvements in both their mental and physical health.
This is a simple but powerful lesson that even the simplest things can have big effects on our lives.
People who took antidepressants, on the other hand, only saw small gains in their mental health. But here’s the catch: their physical health got worse. Antidepressants were linked to weight gain, changes in blood pressure, and problems with heart rate variability. So, while medication has its uses, it’s important to think about how it might affect your body in the long run.
There’s more to this study than just telling you to go for a run. I want to encourage you to take a step towards a better life and happiness. Running can make you feel better and be better for your health, which is two wins in the quest for a better life.
It is clear from research that exercise treatment, like running, should be a big part of mental health care. To help you get the most out of its amazing benefits, it needs the right advice and help.
If you want a better life, better mental and physical health, and an easy but effective way to fight sadness, you might want to put on those running shoes. You are one step closer to the health you’ve been looking for with each step.
People who are depressed may soon find comfort and healing in the rhythm of their own footsteps if exercise therapy gets more study and support.
So, going for your first run might be all it takes to make your life better.
