I agree with you, MM. Still, it's surprising how much exercise will 'help' many with depression even if it doesn't stop it.

The level of exercise & activity needed seems to vary though (if it does help such a person). In talking with my bio prof, she said a couple hours a week was enough to keep her up. But with me, I found I needed to stay with a couple hours a day of sustained high physical activity (aerobic & muscle work). If I couldn't keep at it for even a few days, the full force of the depression would return.

Moral: we're all different & while exercise is recommended for everyone, there's more involved than just that.
