Moderate exercise has positive effect on mental health, study says

Exercise can substantially improve mental health • Earth.com

In that group, people who exercised had seven days of poor mental health a month compared to 11 days for those who didn't exercise. All forms of physical activity were found to improve mental wellness, but the most effective were team sports, aerobics, cycling, and simply going to the gym.

On the other hand, the researchers discovered that more exercise is not always better.

Among the 75 types of exercise recorded, all types were linked with better mental health.

Now a new study extends this fact but adding a caution: over-exercising may cause harmful effects on mental health. The greatest mental health benefits were associated with 45 minutes of exercise between three and five times per week.

The study focused on previous diagnoses of depression, gender, and age along with the type of exercise effectuated.

Dr. Adam Chekroud is an assistant professor of Psychiatry at Yale University, and Chief Scientist at Spring Health. "We are now using this to try and personalise exercise recommendations, and match people with a specific exercise regime that helps improve their mental health".

According to a new large-scale USA study, people who do not exercise get more days of poor mental health a month compared to the people who do.

The study, published Wednesday in The Lancet Psychiatry journal, analyzed responses from a large sample of 1.2 million American adults who participated in a survey conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in 2011, 2013 and 2015. The people who exercised only reported two such days, 1.5 less than those who do notexercise so exercising reduced 43.2 percent of poor mental health days.

Regular physical activity lasting 45 minutes three to five times a week can reduce poor mental health - but doing more than that is not always beneficial, a large USA study suggests. "Doing exercise more than 23 times a month, or exercising for longer than 90 minute sessions is associated with worse mental health".

For people who had previously been diagnosed with depression, exercise was associated with 3.75 fewer days of poor mental health.

Depression was the only mental health taken into account during the study. Strongest improvements were seen in those who had performed team sports, aerobics, and gym exercise.

For the findings, the researchers used participants' mental and physical health, as well as their demographic information, and health-related behaviors.
