A study was published recently that sought to assess the relationship between physical activity and depression. The authors were interested in this relationship because of the high prevalence of depression and it's impact on quality of life. According to a CDC report, as many as 10% of Americans are depressed. So this systematic review of prospective cohort studies examined whether physical activity is protective against the onset of depression.

There is strong evidence that promoting physical activity is a valuable mental health strategy to reduce the risk of developing depression. This includes even low levels of physical activity such as walking ~150 minutes/week.
