Rock Climbing May Significantly Reduce the Symptoms of Depression
A new study suggests that only 8 weeks of rock climbing may significantly reduce the symptoms of depression from moderate to mild.
For their study, a team of researchers from the University of Arizona has analyzed more than 100 adults from Germany, divided into two groups. One group started rock climbing without ropes or harnesses immediately. Another group waited to start the sports activity.
The results of the study showed that those participants who started bouldering immediately experienced more than a six-point improvement in their depression score, reducing their symptoms from moderate to mild.
Study author Eva-Maria Stelzer says: “Bouldering, in many ways, is a positive physical activity. 'There are different routes for your physical activity level and there's a social aspect, along with the feeling of an immediate accomplishment when bouldering.”
