In “Psychology Behind the Headlines,” hosts Jessica Reyes, Patricia Wu, and guest holistic triathlon coach Erinne Guthrie discuss a new study that shows exercise can be as effective as medication or therapy in treating depression.

A large-scale research review finds that regular exercise, including activities like walking, yoga, and strength training, significantly reduces depression symptoms.

Start Small, Build Up

Even 20 minutes of daily exercise can make a big difference for your mood. For maximum benefits, Guthrie recommends varying your workouts to keep your body challenged.
