Studies link sedentary activities to increases in anxiety

Australian researchers said an analysis of study data indicates that sedentary activities, such as working at a desk or playing video games, may increase anxiety symptoms. "It is important that we understand the behavioral factors that may be linked to anxiety -- in order to be able to develop evidence-based strategies in preventing/managing this illness," head researcher Megan Teychenne said in a news release.

The report was published in the journal BMC Public Health.
