More evidence that exercise helps with mood

August 9, 2018

A study was published in Lancet Psychiatry yesterday that added to the evidence that exercise is good for one’s mental health.  In this study, participants rated their mood nearly 1.5 days per month less if they exercised compared to similar people who didn’t exercise.  Those who engaged in team sports, cycling and other exercise with durations of 45 min and frequencies of three to five times per week reported the best effects.

None of this is really new, but the study supports previous studies that show clear and definitive mental health benefits of regular exercise.
