  • Physical exercise is useful for treating people who have anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, and other mental health disorders, according to a study conducted at the University of Vermont, USA.
  • The researchers suggest that physical exercise is as effective in alleviating these patients as pharmacotherapy based on psychotropic drugs.
  • The results indicated that the patients who participated in the study showed improvement in their mood and self-esteem after performing physical exercises under controlled conditions.
  • Also, the levels of anger, anxiety, and depression decreased, and the patients reported that they felt happier and pleased after the exercise sessions.
