Thank you for posting this. It fits perfectly with my opinion on exercise and depression. I don't think the effect exercise has on depression is due to endorphins and other brain chemicals per se. I think it is due to psychological factors, like one's beliefs about him/herself. In this capacity it would be a lot like CBT, I think.
