I came across this article about a study that showed just one hour of exercise per week can help with mental health.
I found it pretty interesting. I especially appreciated this quote:
"What we do know is that what they've identified is a very low bar of entry. We're talking about just an hour of activity a week. And it doesn't have to be vigorous or intense. You don't need to go out to a spin class or sign up for a running club. This could just be getting people who aren't moving much to just increase their daily walking habit. That's all."
I like that they acknowledge that it really isn't much exercise at all. (In fact, I'd venture to say it isn't really enough to help me with diabetes management/blood sugars.). But I do find it interesting how very little movement can help fend off depression.
What are your thoughts on this article?
