When you have anxiety or depression, exercise seems like the last thing you want to do.   But, Brandy Sivesind of Fitness 19 in Sioux Falls says exercise can make a big difference once you get motivated!

"Knowing that exercise and working out can help you feel better might be enough motivation for some people.  Friends and family will help.  If you've got somebody you know and trust---they can help you get into an exercise routine.  If you want to make a change in your life---health clubs have personal trainers.  The trainers are waiting for you to keep you motivated and reach goals as well."

Believe it or not, exercise eases depression and anxiety in a number of ways.

"Exercise releases your feel good brain chemicals including endorphins.  Exercise also raises your body temperature which has a calming effect.  Exercise takes your mind off daily stresses and helps you cope in a healthier way."
