We already know to say that exercise is beneficial not only for our physical condition but also for the mental condition.

But what about spontaneous activities during the day, like going shopping or even visiting friends?

A new study conducted among psychiatric patients found that visiting many and varied places during the day, whatever they were, raised the mood in people suffering from depression or anxiety.



Over the past year, it has not been easy for many to maintain the exercise they used to do, especially when many were afraid to even leave the house.

Some did continue to practice at home.

And yet on weekdays, spontaneous trips are an important health factor that we tend to underestimate.

When most of us think of activities that strengthen the mind, we imagine intentional and strenuous physical activity, whether in an institute, pool or park, but rather a visit to a variety of different locations is associated with a higher sense of well-being in people suffering from depression or anxiety.

A recent study by researchers at the psychiatric clinics of the University of Basel in Switzerland found that the more people visit a variety of places during the day, the better they feel about their emotional and psychological well-being - even if their mental symptoms are still present.



The study conducted before the corona plague entered our lives and mentally harmed a large number of people, examined 106 patients with mental health problems, including emotional disorders, anxiety disorders, mood disorders, personality disorders and obsessive-compulsive disorders.

Some were hospitalized and others lived at home but were regularly treated in medical institutions.

For a week, these patients carried another phone to track their movements using GPS.

They also completed a number of surveys on their subjective well-being, their psychological resilience and their mental health symptoms.

When examining the GPS data the researchers found that greater movement in space and time seemed to parallel a greater sense of well-being, although the symptoms of the mental problems remained largely the same.



"Our results suggest that activity alone is not enough to reduce the symptoms of mental disorders, but it can at least improve the subjective well - being that the patient feels," explained clinical and health psychologist Andrew Gloucester of the University of Basel.



The findings add to limited research on the effects of daily activities among people with mental health problems and this is one of the first studies to use GPS tracking as a measure of spontaneous movement.

Many studies have shown in the past that exercise significantly improves overall well-being and mental health, but most studies on this topic so far have focused on intentional exercise.

Today, it is not clear how spontaneous movement in daily life affects people who are dealing with different mental states.
