Mental and Behavioral Health Conditions

Does exercise help mental health?

Exercise is about more than physical health. It may also help with your emotional and mental health. For example, it may help reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety.

It can be hard to be active when you feel depressed or anxious or have a mental health problem. But being active often may help you feel better. If you have other health issues like coronary artery disease, talk to your doctor before you start a new activity.
