Physically active children less likely to suffer depression
A study says that children who are physically active may be less likely to suffer from depression.
The study was done for the first time to measure the relationship between childhood activity levels and depression.
It found that regular exercise or physical activities like running and walking can reduce the symptoms of depression among children.
Research collected data on physical activity and depression symptoms from six-year-old children. Follow-up was done when the children were 8 and 10 years old.
