Abstract:

"The 'feel-good' effect of physical activity is often reported by exercisers but has not been sufficiently recognised in health services and health promotion. In the modern world of stress and inactivity there is an increasing need to assess the potential benefits of physical activity for our mental health. Physical Activity and Psychological Well-Being provides a research consensus on the relationship between physical exercise and aspects of mental health. Whilst reviewing and integrating relevant information, the book also considers physical activity in relation to the different aspects of mental health: anxiety, depression, mood and emotion, self-esteem, cognitive functioning, and psychological dysfunction." "Physical Activity and Psychological Well-Being is an important resource and foundation for those in health services, health psychology, clinical psychology, psychiatry and sport and exercise settings for promoting the benefits of physical activity for improving mental health. The text is also invaluable reading for undergraduate and postgraduate students in sport and exercise science." --Book Jacket.
