The scientists also asked them to answer questions about their income and how often they exercised. They came to the conclusion that people who do not exercise, but earn on average $ 25,000 a year, are just as happy as those who do physical activities daily. As we know that it is a little difficult to have that sum of money, we recommend encouraging you to exercise, especially to enjoy it.
And as if that were not enough, the study also showed that certain sports that involve socializing, such as those performed as a team, can have a more positive effect on their mental health. There are no pretexts, girls.
But do not abuse
Exercising is very good, but how much is enough?
The expert Adam Chekroud, from Yale University, in an interview with Die Welt commented that the relationship between the duration of the sport and the mental load has the form of OR, that is, there must be a balance because you will only have mental well-being when the physical activity is within the standards, so nothing in excess!
In addition, the study revealed that having three to five training sessions per week, lasting 30 to 60 minutes, is ideal. So decide what time you prefer and if you have time to exercise. We know that the first days will be quite difficult, but you will see how you will improve your mental health.
