Abstract

IntroductionDepression is commonly associated with morbidity and mortality, through suicide, as well as cognitive behavior dysfunction, sleep disorders, low levels of life satisfaction and physical activity (PA). Depression has been identified as a significant, but preventable, cause and consequence of aging‐related disability. In addition, depression, which commonly occurs as a comorbidity, as estimated, would become the second highest contributor to the global disease burden by 2030, and its prevalence worldwide is projected to double from its present level by 2050.PA is a protective factor against depressive symptoms. The benefits of PA in the maintenance of mental health have been consistently shown using objective health measures, with these benefits equally available to older adults. Some studies have shown improvement in or positive associations with mood, self‐esteem, morale and a lower occurrence of depressive symptoms. In addition, the Physical Activity Guidelines Advisory Committee Report 2008 showed that PA was associated with an approximately 30–45% decrease in the risk of depressive symptoms in cross‐sectional studies, and a 15–25% decrease in prospective studies. Findings from a review of studies have shown that habitual moderate‐to‐vigorous intensity physical activity (MVPA) is positively associated with measured depressive symptoms in older adults.
