If you’re feeling down, skip the candy and retail therapy—go for a walk! New research says going for a walk can improve your mood, and even reduce symptoms of depression like fatigue.

The beauty benefits of exercise are well documented—improving everything from your skin to your waistline. But this is a reminder that it doesn’t always have to be intense.

The study didn’t specify how often or how far people needed to walk to reap the benefits. Any physical activity can get endorphins flowing, which are those wonderful brain chemicals that make us look and feel so good.

That alone is one of the best beauty secrets out there.
