Vigorous exercise offers more of a mood boost than less strenuous exercise, a new study finds.



U.K. researchers compared 11 sedentary people who did moderate and high-intensity exercise. Their mood was assessed before, during, immediately following, and 20 minutes after they did the workouts.



The participants' moods were more negative during and immediately after high-intensity exercise, compared to when they did the less strenuous exercise or no exercise. However, their mood 20 minutes after doing the vigorous workout was much better compared to before the workout.



This type of improvement did not occur after moderate or no exercise, the investigators found.
