Can you be happier by lifting weights?

Resistance Exercise

Need a mood lift? Try lifting some weights. Or practice yoga. Or join an aquatic exercise class. Working your muscles isn’t just good for you physically, it’s also great for mental wellness. 

According to a recent study, older adults who trained regularly twice a week were more optimistic about the future and experienced less stress, pain and depression.
