1. "Good Sleep: Research shows that people who go without enough good sleep (at least six hours a night) are up to six times as likely to become depressed as those who get good sleep."
3. Good Exercise: They say aerobic exercise is the best but its similar to sex in which exercising releases feel good chemicals in your body. They actually mention how depression can actually be treated with an exercise regimen of three thirty-minute sessions per week of aerobic exercise at 60 to 80 percent of maximum heart rate for at least eight weeks. Guess I better keep up with my morning runs.
4. Good Food: They list a number of foods that are good for your brain and body, but my interpretation of it is delicious healthy food = pure bliss that lasts long after the meal does. Its one thing to have orgasmic food like Waffle House or Popeyes in my case, but once that delicious comatose feeling subsides, if the food is unhealthy you feel like a load of crap after (kind of how I felt on Thanksgiving). BUT if its healthy food, you get that same deliousness without feeling like you are going to die of a heart attack later and that is happiness at its finest for a food lover.
