Mental health can be improved by exercising, Regular exercise is necessary for a healthy body and mind. It can also prevent many health problems. Now a new study found that exercising brings happiness. As a result, mental health can also be better.
According to researchers at Oxford and Yale Universities, people exercising daily are happier than those who do not exercise. This conclusion has been drawn on the basis of a survey conducted on about 1.2 million people. The study also found that 30 to 60 minutes of exercise three times a week has an effect on happiness levels. The effect of income on happiness levels has also been found. People earning more income can be as happy as the person who exercises. Researchers said that exercising not only benefits mental health but also keeps our entire body healthy and diseases also do not easily hold the body.
