Factors That Affect The Willingness To Exercise

August 2, 2006

This study was conducted by the Harvard researchers and their analysis showed that among the 274 middle aged adults at risk of developing diabetes… those who were thinner and more confident in their ability to be active with lower stress and anxiety levels and depression were the ones more likely to exercise. 

The study is very important in the sense that coping mechanisms to stress and the determination of any depression should be addressed by the health care professionals as these may be factors that may help patients lead active lives.

Beat The Stress…Let’s Exercise!
