New studies say exercise is good for the body and the brain:

– Depression Cure: A Rutgers University study says doing 30 minutes of meditation followed by 30 minutes of exercise twice a week for two months reduced depression symptoms by 40 percent. The combo therapy also cuts anxiety, boosts motivation, and improves overall outlook.
– Sharper Mind University of Maryland School of Public Health research found that regular, moderate exercise increases the thickness of the brain’s cortex, the part that usually deteriorates due to Alzheimer’s disease.
