The pain relieving specialist is asked: You’re always in a good mood. Sometimes I’m in a really bad mood. Do you have any tips? Or in other words, what do you do differently from me?
“Well, I have an idea. Let’s take a look at the study by looking at the effects of exercise. Training undoubtedly builds muscle mass and strength. But that is only one point. In addition to that, the following was found: It is beneficial for a good mood and can help alleviate symptoms of depression. For this purpose, the results of about 2000 people from 33 individual studies were compared. According to the lead author of the study, Brett Gordon, a researcher at the “Institute of Sport and Sport Sciences at the University of Limerick” in Ireland, the greatest improvements were observed in people with symptoms of mild to moderate depression.

“Now perhaps a note on a remarkable study of 34,000 people over 11 years. The analyses showed that those who did not exercise were 44 per cent more likely to become depressed than those who did so for at least one to two hours a week. There you hear it again, 1-2 hours a week. That’s about 8-16 minutes a day.
The majority of this protective effect occurred at low levels of exercise and was observed regardless of intensity, the researchers said. “
“Good luck on your journey. “
