One Hour of Exercise Weekly Can Reduce Depression Risk

27 Dec

People who do one hour a week of any type of exercise, at any intensity level, have  44% lower risk of developing depression over a decade than people who do not exercise at all.

More exercise or more intense exercise is not better from a mental-health standpoint. Any type of physical activity, including simple walking, had the same benefit.
