10th April 2008

A survey has suggested that performing household chores could improve mental health.

The study for the British Journal of Sports Medicine by University College London researchers suggested that 20 minutes of sustained exercise a week, from cleaning to jogging, can help depression with more strenuous and frequent activity having a greater impact. It looked at the weekly exercise regime and subsequent state of mind for 20,000 people.

Meanwhile, another study published in the journal found that exercise among the middle-aged and elderly may delay the ageing process.
