About this Lecture
In this lecture, we think about how these concepts can be summarised, focusing in particular on: (i) clarifying the difference between exercising and being active; (ii) reiterating the importance of the field, given the economic and health downturn that inactivity has the potential to cause; (iii) reviewing the irrational beliefs and negative relationships with exercise that can result in a negative impact on mental health; (iv) the rationalities which can be drawn to create a healthier relationship with exercise.
In this course, Dr Anthony Miller (Staffordshire University) explores the relationship between exercise and mental health. In the first lecture, we think about what exercise is and what mental health benefits it can bring. In the second lecture, we think about some key research findings in the field of exercise and mental health. In the third lecture, we think about the irrational beliefs and negative relationships that can exist in the mind of someone with an exercise addiction. Next, we think about techniques that can be implemented to improve people’s relationship with exercise. In the fifth and final lecture, we think about how these concepts can be summarised.
