Situations you are facing in life, it might be an interview, facing a challenge and other factors that can make one to be anxious. Adrenaline and cortisol hormones shoot high thus increase the anxiety within the body system. Through exercise, the level of anxiety is reduced thus reducing stress.
There are some people who have been through depression either genetically (hormonal imbalance and low mood) or through some experience in life. Those that have been born with these genes are basically put on medication to control and are advised to do exercise which reduces stress thus help in managing depression condition.
