Abstract

The feel-good factor we feel after exercise is well documented: aside from the endorphins - the ‘happy hormones’ - that our bodies produce, the sense of achievement, being outdoors and doing something different can all lead to a sense of well-being and contentment. In our next article, contributors Alan Wright and Dr Mima Cattan report on the findings of their study into hospital-based exercise groups to help patients overcome depression.
