Re: Evidence that exercise helps in depression is still weak, finds review

I love to lie on my back
It's effortless and dreamy
Free of skeletal concerns

Sitting is awkward
Standing is outward
Walking and running are downward

My bed and hammock are heavenly
Moving me inward and upward
So I can exorcise my body
And exercise my mind

Competing interests: I have a self-published e-book called "Peace Poetry & The LOVE Diet", which simplifies health and demystifies addiction.
