No need to be a gym freak – even walking can help improve your mood

Those who spend a lot of time sitting tend to be the least happiest, but the good news is that they do not even have to slog at the gym to lift their spirits. Simply getting out of the chair and moving around should be enough, according to a new study.

“We hope this research helps people realise the important public health message that simply going from doing no physical activity to performing some physical activity can improve their subjective well-being,” said the study’s lead author Gregory Panza from University of Connecticut in the US.

“What is even more promising for the physically inactive person is that they do not need to exercise vigorously to see these improvements,” Panza said.
