Issac: You look so depressed. What happened?
Natalia: My boss is so hard on me. I usually have to beat my brains out just to complete the task he assigns me.
Issac: Why not go get some exercise? That should help you to relieve some pressure.
Natalia: That's going to make me more exhausted, isn't it ?
Issac: I don't think so. According to a story I read in the China Post, physical activities can stimulate your brain to produce endocrine -- they work just like some anti-depressants!
Natalia: Sounds not bad. I'll try doing some exercises right now to see if it really works!
