How Crucial is Exercise to Fight Depression?
Exercising is not something naive for therapists, psychologists, and even psychiatrists. For centuries, it has been recommended for many health benefits. Be it making your mental health sound or making your mood proactive, exercising plays a keen role in the achievement of those. Nonetheless, the new study shares a threadbare analysis of exercise and its coherence with depression.
However, what is more, shocking about the new findings – on the relationship between depression and exercise – is that depression is directly linked with one’s mood and feelings. And exercising is a trusted way to boost your mood and feel good. It is pretty commonplace.
Have you ever been outing for a good week and have quit it midway? How did you feel about it? And what was the internal talk that you were having with yourself at that moment? If you have been in that position, you can tell how low your mood was and how offended you were.
There is a whole science and art behind it. When you feel afresh physically, your psyche will feel good too – and vice versa. And it goes without saying that depression is the patent consequence of your continuous bad mood and low feelings.
What Was the Study About?
The study that shares very detailed and thorough analysis of the correlation between mental health, depression, and exercising is the one recently published on Jama Psychiatry.
The research analyzes two sets of 180 adults. It follows them for three years. The ones who were habitual of exercising were put in one group and vice versa. However, the measurement level was 150 minutes of exercise per week.
Nonetheless, the results were wholesome and shocking. It turns out that the adults who were following the recommended exercise period showed 25% less symptoms of depression. Likewise, adults who did a little bit of exercise every day showed 16% less symptoms of depression.
It is pertinent to mention here that along with depression, these adults were free from other psychological disorders as well. On the other hand, adults who had done no exercise and had no physical activity at all turned out to be more vulnerable to mental health disorders. Of course, it goes without saying that depression was the top-most among those disorders.
Although it is yet under analysis as to how exercise helps reduce mental disorders. Several pieces of research are on the way that are aiming to dig out the complex mechanism of body activity and mental health.
