A carefully designed, randomized, controlled 12-week study of 106 adults with nonpsychotic major depression with limited response to medication found both high- and low-dose aerobic exercise resulted in significant improvements in psychosocial functioning and quality of life measures. The exercise sessions were not in group settings to minimize the social, non-exercise related effects. The high-dose group met the current 150 minutes per week recommendation for moderate-intensity exercise.

LifeTip: Struggling with depression? Even moderate amounts of physical activity can make a big difference how you function in life. Watch “Maximize Mental Performance” by Dr. David DeRose for more mood-boosting recommendations.
