Scientists Say There’s An Everyday Activity That’s Better Than Exercise At Tackling Depression

Depression can affect absolutely anyone, regardless of age or background. And while there’s a much greater awareness these days of mental health issues, the methods for tackling them are still up for debate. One established treatment for depression, though, is exercise. But it turns out that there’s an easier everyday activity that may be even more effective.

Depression can of course severely impact your life, particularly when it develops into a long-term condition. People can even spend weeks, months or years feeling relentlessly unhappy. Typically, those coping with depression will experience a loss of interest in things they used to enjoy too. They will also experience other symptoms such as anxiety and fatigue.
