How does exercise reduce stress and depression

Can exercise reduce stress? 

Physical activity is a good way to reduce stress and depression. From walking to swimming, no matter how gentle or how challenging, physical activity is a great healer. Most of us know from experience that exercise makes us feel better psychologically, but scientific support for this belief appeared in Cardiac Rehabilitation : Clinical Practice Guideline, published by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in 1995. A panel of experts reviewed various studies and concluded that “exercise training enhances measures of psychological and social functioning . . . including measures of emotional stress.” It is known that exercise stimulates production of endorphins, which promote a sense of well-being in the body. Find some time for some physical activity, even if only for a few minutes or for a short walk, each and every day.
