Movement for Mood: Exercise as a Treatment for Depression

Movement for Mood: Exercise as a Treatment for Depression | St. Louis Psychiatrist | Scoop.it

Depression — not to be confused with normal sadness — has been called many things since Hippocrates first described the disease back in the 5th century BC. In fact, it may have been Hippocrates himself who first coined the term melancholy, which literally translates as “black bile.” He believed the feelings of sadness, emptiness and hopelessness associated with depression were caused by a buildup of toxic sludge in the spleen. More recently, psychologist and existentialist Rollo May described the condition as “the inability to construct a future,” while Spanish philosopher George Santayana said it is “rage spread thin.” Essayist and activist Susan Sontag put it more simply: “Depression,” she said, “is melancholia minus its charms.” If you suffer from the disease, you know exactly what she meant.
