INFLUENCE OF AEROBICS ON MODULATION OF DEPRESSION AND ANXIETY AMONG COLLEGE STUDENTS
Many college students have mental problems like depression or anxiety. This paper attempts to reveal the modulation effect of aerobics on depression and anxiety among college students. Based on the self-rating depression scale (SDS) and the self-rating anxiety scale (SAS), a questionnaire survey was conducted on 60 students. The survey data were analyzed on SPSS19.0. Then, the subjects were divided evenly into two groups. Only one of the two groups were asked to do aerobic exercise. Through the analysis on the experimental results, it is concluded that female students are more susceptible to depression and anxiety than male students; longterm and moderate aerobics can effectively relieve the negative moods of college students. Therefore, college students are suggested to participate in aerobic exercise to ensure their mental health. The research findings lay a theoretical basis for modulation of negative emotions of college students.
