The links between physical exercise and a reduction in the amount of depression symptoms experienced by employees in new age workplaces with exercise options, have now been proven. A new study’s findings published in the latest issue of the American Journal of Health Promotion show evidence that this is the case, despite contradictory evidence from elsewhere.
There is now evidence that bosses and their attitude towards physical fitness in the workplace not only increases the physical well being of workers, but their mental well being also. The value of a variety of strategies to encourage exercise in particular amongst sedentary employees is now evident. The knock on benefits include; lower rates of medical insurance that in some cases are paid for by the business.
Devices were attached to those surveyed monitoring the physical exercise taken part in by the individuals during their work day. There was a contradiction in terms amongst those surveyed however in that those who managed to achieve moderate to brisk exercise in their work day were also more sedentary overall.
The state of mental health in these individuals was still at the positive end of the spectrum. This discrepancy is explained by the jobs where investment of this type is introduced normally in an office based work environment. In other jobs where the extras of this ilk are not offered, the physical exertion of the tasks proved enough to have a positive impact on mental well being also.Learn how I beat Depression
