Exercise = good for mental health

An interesting study from researchers at Yale and Oxford and published in The Lancet on the positive affects of exercise. A study of 1.2 million people found people who exercised regularly suffered nearly 50 % less days of feeling bad than those who didn’t exercise regularly. They also found that exercise may be a more important factor in your mental health than your economic status. What was also interesting is the researchers believe the positive mental health effects are ideal when people exercise 3 to 5 times a week for 30 to 60 minutes but they also noticed that those who exercised too much had the opposite effect on their mental health. I talked in a previous post about an hour being the cutoff point, or point of diminishing returns, in a workout and this study seems to add more proof to that. The author of the study, Adam Chekroud of Yale University, states that exercise positive effect on mental health is like a U curve and is only effective when it’s within a certain time frame. This is similar to how I stated in a previous post on how exercise is like a mountain, with under training on one side and over training on the other, and how you want to reach the peak of the mountain (optimal exercise) without going down the other side into over training. #exercise #research #fitness #health #workout #yaleuniversity #oxforduniversity #gym #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #physicalactivity #lasvegas #lasvegaspersonaltrainer #personaltrainer #fitnesstrainer #gymtrainer #strengthcoach
