Exercise Improves Mental Health: What Is The Maximum Limit?

Are you doing too much exercise

The investigators found that cycling, team-oriented sports, and aerobic exercise are beneficial for mental health. Duration and frequency of exercising was found to be an important factor, 3-5 times per week was shown to have had better mental health than those who exercised less. Findings are being used to develop and personalize exercise recommendations to match people with specific exercise regimes to help improve mental health. Compared to people who reported doing no exercise, people who exercised reported 1.5 fewer days of poor mental health a month - a reduction of 43 percent.

The study, published in The Lancet Psychiatry Journal, is the largest of its kind to date but it can not confirm that physical activity is the cause of improved mental health.

Dr Adam Chekroud, study author and assistant professor of psychiatry at Yale University, said: "Previously, people have believed that the more exercise you do, the better your mental health, but our study suggests that this is not the case".

"Depression is the leading cause of disability worldwide, and there is an urgent need to find ways to improve mental health through population health campaigns", said Dr. Chekroud.

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

Prof Stephen Lawrie, head of psychiatry at the University of Edinburgh, said it indicated that social and "mindful" exercise is particularly good for mental health - but not if it is overdone.

Exercise reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease, stroke, diabetes, and mortality from all causes, but its association with mental health remains unclear. He said that people who do not exercise enough are not giving their brains much needed stimulation, while people who exercise too much are running themselves into the ground.

A study in the U.S. reported that those who exercised 3-5 times a week had better mental health than those who did not exercise.

According to a new large-scale US study, people who do not exercise get more days of poor mental health a month compared to the people who do. In addition to this they also recorded how often they had exercised in the past 30 days and the number of times a week and how long they did this exercise.

Exercising for 30-60 minutes was associated with the biggest reduction in poor mental health days.
