Homework 15

CH. 17 DQ’s:
1. In the chapter I read that 1 in 4 Americans suffer from clinical depression at any given time, how many people don’t realize that they are clinically depressed and why?

2. Biologically how is it that exercise enhances a person’s mood in a positive manner?

3. Is the personality style hardiness one that you are born with or can it be learned? If it can be learned, what are some ways to train a person in hardiness?

4. The chapter says that the use of exercise as an adjunct to therapy works well in reducing depression, stress or other emotional disorders in most people, but what do you do for the people this doesn’t work for? For example, a study found that aerobic exercise therapy wasn’t right for those who were obese, what is a good alternative?
