Information society has significantly expanded our horizons, but at the same time brought some considerable disadvantages. One of those is sedentary lifestyle that numerous office workers all over the world experience. Moreover, with the spread of technology it has become one of the main ways to occupy spare time among kids.While scientists have been doing research in all possible areas studying how use of technology affects people throughout different periods of their lives, there has also been an attempt to find out whether having a life with little movement and exercising leads to negative consequences for children who haven’t had a lot of it during their childhood. As depression is becoming more and more troublesome issue for the first-world countries, researchers have been trying to find out if there are ways to minimize probability of developing it eventually. At the same time, children are the group that can be affected by depression as well as teens and adults can, and rates of this condition among kids have been only increasing. Therefore a study carried out by Norwegian University of Science and Technology was meant to determine whether more physical activity for kids would help to prevent them from falling into depression afterwards. The researchers have carefully analyzed data gathered from 795 six-year-old participants who have earlier been asked about their exercise habits and depressive symptoms. The same children have been followed with the same questions at the age of eight (699 respondents) and ten (702 respondents).The analysis concluded that children with moderate-to vigorous physical activity (MVPA) had fewer depressive symptoms later in life. So, as exercising has proven to be beneficial for both physical and mental health of children, parents can take care of providing their kids with a set of exercises to do. For example, these may be good to go with.
