If you’ve found yourself feeling rundown and symptomatic as a result of depression, even the thought of physical exertion can be almost exhausting. It is, however, still essential when it comes to your physical health that you continue engaging in an active lifestyle. Refraining from participating in physical activity can lead to several chronic medical conditions that often lead to premature death. This is why it is so important that those diagnosed with depression still use exercise as a form of self-care.
