June 28 '11 PsychologySalon at UBC Robson Square: Exercise and Mood

“Why don’t you go get some exercise? It’ll be good for you.” Echoes of our childhood ring in our ears every time our friends, family, and physician tell us about the importance of fitness. But how important is it, really? 

In this talk we’ll review the surprisingly powerful evidence supporting the use of exercise in the treatment of mood disorders, anxiety problems, and general life stress. We’ll consider questions including: 

  • How much exercise is necessary?
  • Is exercise as effective as Celexa?
  • Does it have to be aerobic?
  • Does walking count?
  • If you don’t have any energy, why would spending energy on exercise be helpful?

7 pm to 9 pm June 28 2011 at UBC Robson Square, Room C400

Tickets $15 at the door, or reserve ahead at
