    I can get depressed during exercising, at times. If I go at it really hard. I think the complete exhaustion can take a momentary mental toll on me, and underlying stress (even overjoy) will present itself disguised as tears.

    Me too. I seriously thought it was just me.

    I often found myself fighting back tears on my way back from the gym. I thought maybe it was because I find being around strangers difficult, let alone exercising in a public setting. Like maybe the pressure of it all was getting to me, but I have found I am just as emotional when I work out at home alone.

    I actually started exercising to get the happy feelings it's supposed to give one, and ended up feeling worse each time.

    Yes, me too. But I don't mean to compare situations.

    I used to exercise for the sake of health, but now I have just started to eat healthier food. I rarely exercise because it just seems so pointless, and when I'm done, everything else looks pointless too. It just changes my perspective. I end up thinking, I'm going to die anyway, life is finite and arguably quite short, might as well enjoy it and do what I want instead of wasting my time exercising. I also used to exercise when I was stressed, maybe after I'd exercised I was too tired to contain/suppress the stress like I usually do, so it kind of bubbled up. Anyway, this is what I think happened for me, I don't mean to imply that it's the same on your end.

    I'm told the secret to exercise is to find something you like doing and keep doing it.

    I like walking and dancing so I keep on walking and sometimes I dance.

    Enjoyment is the key to life, so it is worthwhile looking for things you enjoy.

    I agree with this.

    I love cycling, so most of my exercise is cycling.
