Statistics show that the Swedes are people most prone to suicide. But there are no suicides among Swedish loggers. The scientists concluded that the reason for this is their hard work. So the constant threat to be under the falling tree cause the human body to make morphine-like elements, which reduce stress to minimum. This also happens with the soldiers in military operations.
Opiates, endorphins, as well as other inner “drugs” that your body make in the process of physical activity reduce the sensitiveness to all sorts of stresses. Deep breathing also helps to avoid depression. It is obvious why retired people are often depressed. They have reduced the level of mental and physical loads and the body is not fed with this “drug”. So do not be lazy, load yourself with different activities, because physical work save us from all possible stresses.
