December is month when so much around us is saying to be merry and bright. Often times, however, we or someone we know is anything but that. The cold wakes some of us up and causes others to seek their caves and hibernate for the winter. Seasonal changes for many of us in the northeast can cause seasonal depression. Studies have shown that exercise of all types helps us combat depression, but it goes beyond that; connection with community is an unexpected bonus that comes with many forms of exercise.
