Exercise and depression


In the news in the UK yesterday, was the published report of some research into the treatment of depression, using physical exercise as a means to aiding recovery.
In the study some patients were given help to boost their activity levels in addition to receiving therapy or anti-depressants.
One group had to do physical exercise three times a week and presumably the other group did none. All the participants were prescribed the same tablets as medicine in their treatment plan.
After a year all the patients had fewer signs of depression, but there was no difference between the two groups. Contrary to expectations the exercising group did not pull out of their depression any faster or show a deeper recovery than the other group..
So, if going to the gym and jogging or swimming or taking a long walk, has not been to shown to  make the difference to depressed people, maybe they should try my wife’s cure.
At the first sign of grumpiness or a depressive state of mind, I am bent over a chair for twenty strokes with the paddle or the cane.

I am thus returned to a cheerful state immediately and of course it gives my wife some exercise as well.



Maybe a second, stricter research project is called for, with some European Community funding?

  1. Michael,

    I bet your wife feels better also. So, it is a win-win for both of you.

  4. I'm so disappointed in that study, lol! I love to exercise and for myself I don't want to believe it doesn't make me feel better. Of course, I rarely get depressed. I'm a happy person, by nature.

    Love,
    Kitty

  5. Hi Joey - Yes I think we both benefit.
    David - Good to hear that the treatment plan works for you. Mardiness is a good term for the grumps.
    Ronnie - The "spanking back to happiness" plan has some merit it seems. (There's a song tune there that I can't quite remember)
    Kitty - Yes, I think you are a very cheerful sort of person so not much in need of the plan.

    That photo is a classic in Femdom...and one of my all time favorites! I don't think I'll ever grow tired of seeing it!

  7. Hope my other, more dominant half doesn't read this as I've been a bit grumpy for the last 6 weeks or so. That's going to earn such a spanking.
