Note that I am not suggesting beating yourself in the head produces endorphin release. It is probably more of a distraction, or a third mechanism that I am not sure what to call it; perhaps it is that I feel I've "done something" about the problem (subjectively) and I feel a degree of satisfaction that I have accomplished something.

I'm sorry I have never noticed the "runner's high". But everyone (who says anything at all about the topic) says exercise helps, not only for depression, but all sorts of things. The greatest problem is that when you have apathy, you need an almost tremendous amount of will power (determination) to push yourself to exercise adequately.

I enjoy going for a walk, but this kind of exercise is probably not intense enough to reap the benefits of exercise. It is more recreation for me, and just to kill time.
