The research team announced that this fact was found as a result of a comprehensive analysis of 218 related research papers involving a total of 14,170 people.

The exercise that reduced depression the most was dancing.

The research team found that walking, jogging, yoga, strength training, tai chi, and qigong exercises were also significantly effective in treating depression.

The harder and more intense the exercise, the greater the effect of treating depression.

Additionally, a synergistic effect was observed when using selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) antidepressants along with exercise or when psychotherapy was combined with aerobic exercise.
