If you suffer from depression, you're not alone. According to the World Health Organization, depression affects about 121 million people worldwide. The good news is that it can be managed effectively – sometimes in simpler ways than you might realise.

Take action:
Major depression, the most serious type, requires immediate medical help, sometimes even hospitalisation. But for mild-to-moderate depression, exercise can be a vital treatment. It keeps you busy, calms you down and leaves you relaxed and satisfied. And it’s not bad for the rest of your body either!
