If exercise helps with depression and anxiety, what type of exercise helps most
I'm open to both sciency answers of the "Here's a study that says structured group activities yield the fastest results" variety and personal accounts like "Long distance running saved my life."

You can safely assume that I am already pursuing other avenues like therapy and medication. This is an addition, not a replacement.
I basically want to attack this thing on as many fronts as possible, but because it is eating so much of my confidence and energy, I feel like the only way I have a prayer is if I'm really smart and targeted about how I use my remaining resources.
So what's going to give me the most bang for my metaphorical buck? Where should I start?
