(WAFF) - A new study shows Tai chi relieves insomnia in breast cancer patients.
UCLA researchers assigned 90 breast cancer survivors to three months of Tai chi, or talk therapy, which is often recommended. Fifteen months later, nearly half of people in both groups had significant improvement in their insomnia symptoms.
Tai chi also improved patient's depression and fatigue.
You don't have to hit the gym or run a marathon to feel happier and better about yourself. A new University of Connecticut study finds a leisurely walk can reduce depression in sedentary people.
When researchers monitored the activity of 400 adults for four days, they found more was not always better. Light or moderate exercise had the greatest improvements in mood and well-being.
