In brief: Yes it can!

It's a proven medical fact that steady and consistant exercise, as simple as just walking, increases the bodie's production of these "feel good" endorphins.
There are other additional benefits to exercise such as increased energy & drive, more appropriate eating habits, weight loss and reduction of percent body fat converting poorly metabolized white fat to the more easily metabolized brown fat.
