Riassunto: Depression is a disabling condition which can adversely affect a person's work, sleep, eating habits, and family life-as well as one's overall health. Unfortunately, while commonly used treatments can be highly effective, they may not be ideal for everybody. For instance, some drugs have unwanted side-effects, and many people are turned off by the social stigma of going to therapy. Money can be an issue as well.

This is the point of Exercise Beats Depression. It is not a substitute for medical therapy, but rather represents another option that can be used alone or in combination with other treatments to effectively lower or eliminate the symptoms of depression. Here's a little of what's inside...

  • you pick either the strengthening exercise program or the aerobic exercise program
  • either exercise program will take up no more than one hour, three times a week of your time
  • either exercise program can be done at home or at the gym
  • depression levels typically start to go down the first week you start to exercise.
  • over the following weeks, depression levels continue to improve, and studies show that even if you stop exercising, the improvements you have made in depression can be maintained
  • who can benefit? Exercise has been shown to be effective on people diagnosed with major depression. Exercise can also help just about anyone to generally improve their mood.
Based entirely on randomized controlled trials, Exercise Beats Depression is a simple, yet effective program that can be done in the privacy of one's home with minimal cost or equipment. Exercise sheets are also included to help guide the reader step-by-step through the 6-week program.

Dall'autore: The book  "Exercise Beats Depression" is  divided up into three sections...
Section 1  is  "Overview of Exercise and Depression"  and answers such questions as...

  • What proof is there that exercise is actually effective in treating depression?
  • What kind of exercise is best when it comes to treating depression?
  • How much exercise does one have to do in order to decrease depression?
  • Is doing exercise at home on your own as effective as supervised exercise?
  • Does exercise work better if its done with other people compared to exercising by your self?
  • How long do I have to exercise before I will see an improvement in my depression?
  • How long do the results of the exercise program last?
  • How does execise compare to other treatments for depression?
Section 2  is  "The Strengthening Exercise Program"  and answers such questions as...
  • What should I wear?
  • What equipment will I need?
  • How many exercises will I have to do?
  • How many times will I have to lift the weight for each exercise?
  • How much weight should I start off with?
  • The section shows you 6 warm-up stretches for the neck, shoulders, legs, and back, followed by six basic strengthening exercises that work all the major upper and lower body muscles.  Also included are alternate exercises in case some of the basic exercises don't agree with you. For instance, there are exercises you can do in the standing position, or lying down.
  • These exercise can all be done at home.  However if you prefer to use a gym, and have access to weight machines, I've outlined a gym routine you can also do.
  • This section has over 75 pictures of the exercises so you that know how to do them correctly - and ends with 6-weeks worth of exercise sheets so you can write down your progress and stay on track.
Section 3 is  "The Aerobic Exercise Program" and answers such questions as...
  • What exactly is aerobic exercise?
  • What should I wear?
  • Is one kind of aerobic exercise better than another when it comes to beating depression?
  • How fast do I need to walk or run?
  • Does it matter where I do my aerobic exercise?
  • The section shows you 6 warm-up stretches for the neck, shoulders, legs, and back, followed by your choice of aerobic exercises: walking or running.
  • The aerobic exercises can all be done at home.  
  • This section ends with 6-weeks worth of exercise sheets so you can write down your progress and stay on track.
At 71 pages, I wrote this book so the reader could finish it in a few hours, and have a good understanding of how they could use simple exercises to improve their mood. Exercise is free, simple to do, and proven to work in many controlled research studies.                                   You can learn more about the author and his books at
