Aside from toughening up your body, physical activity may also help prevent depression, Science Daily reports.

PhD candidate George Mammen and review co-author Professor Guy Faulkner went through 26 years’ worth of previous studies and found that moderate exercise (20-30 minutes a day) such as walking, jogging, and even gardening may shield people of all ages from depression despite factors like genetic predisposition and traumatic experiences.

“It’s definitely worth taking note that if you’re currently active, you should sustain it. If you’re not physically active, you should initiate the habit,” Mammen advises.
