Summary Results from several studies have shown moderate amounts of exercise to be beneficial in reducing symptoms of depression and anxiety. However, it is unclear as to whether exercise can be successful in preventing anxiety or depression. Based on previous research, the author hypothesizes the following: that there will be a curvilinear relationship between amount of exercise and measures of anxiety and depression; As amount of exercise increases to a moderate level, anxiety and depression will decrease; If exercise is in excess, depression and anxiety will increase.
