Yes: Exercise has been theorized to increase endorphins and has been shown to significantly improve mood and decrease lethargy. Although no significant evidence conclusively proves that these changes actually decrease pms/pmdd symptoms, but such lifestyle changes in habits (with increased exercise) can improve overall health and mood.
