Boul­der­ing can calm your mind and boost your men­tal well­be­ing. How? Re­searchers from the Univer­sity of Ari­zona in the US and Ger­many’s Uni of Er­lan­gen­nurem­berg found suf­fer­ers of de­pres­sion ex­pe­ri­enced a re­duc­tion in their symp­toms after boul­der­ing for three hours a week over an eight-week pe­riod. They claim fo­cus­ing on the task at hand helps to cut worry lev­els. Not keen? Any type of ex­er­cise is a win for men­tal health, so sweat to it.
