Default Feeling depressed? This is what you need...

This article I read describes how light exercise can eliminate depression.
George Mammen, a University of Toronto doctorate student is the author behind the work, and his advice is: 'If you're active, keep sustaining it; if you're not, then start'.

His findings revealed that 150 mins of exercise a week resulted in an 8 per cent decrease in depression, which increased with more exercise for those who have mild depression. Meanwhile, a few hours of light exercise a week can be used as an alternative treatment for mild depression too.

The mood boost provided by being active is caused by the release of endorphins, often called 'runner's high' which give a more positive outlook on life and reduces stress.

How does everyone feel about this? Have some of us experience this before?
