(HealthDay News) -- Exercise is a great way to preserve mental fitness and reduce stress and anxiety, the Anxiety and Depression Association of America says.
Research has shown that physically active people have lower amounts of anxiety and depression than sedentary people, the group reports.
It offers these suggestions to help get you started:
- Jog, walk, bike, or dance three to five times a week for 30 minutes a session.
- Set small daily goals and aim for daily consistency. It's better to walk every day for 30 minutes than to wait until the weekend for a three-hour marathon.
- Find exercise that you think is fun.
- Make the time pass faster with music, audiobooks or podcasts.
- Get a friend to work out with you.
- Be patient when you start a new fitness routine.
