If you want to avoid depression, then make fishing a hobby
London: If you want to stay mentally healthy, then take up fishing as a hobby, researchers say.
The researchers drew this conclusion from a study in which more than seventeen hundred men participated.
To examine the effects of fishing on men’s mental health, this study (research study) was jointly conducted by researchers from Anglia Ruskin University, University of Ulster and Queen’s University.
During the study, 1,752 men were asked questions about whether they went fishing and other topics such as any past mental illness, exercise and other health-related questions.
Participants in the research study who said they went fishing regularly had a 17 percent lower rate of having a mental or psychiatric illness than those who did not fish regularly.
A study published in a scientific journal a few weeks ago has shown that the more people go fishing, the better their mental health.
Dr. Mike Trott, from the Center for Health Research at the University of Queensland, who was part of the study, says that although it is recognized that positive hobbies have a positive effect on mental and physical health, this study It has been found that people who go fishing more often have better mental health than other people.
Dr. Mike Trott said that these people are less likely to suffer from depression, mental disorder and other mental illnesses or negative conditions, and they also do not have suicidal thoughts.
