Depression affects more than 17 million Americans, which represents the most prominent mental disorder in the world. Women experience depression twice as often as men. The purpose of this study was to investigate if women between the ages of 18-48 who exercise on a regular basis have fewer incidences of depression then women that do not exercise. The Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression Scale (CES-D) was utilized to evaluate depression. An exercise description survey was used to identify age and exercise habits. Dorothea Orem’s Self-Care Deficit Theory provided the theoretical framework. The sample consisted of 54 women ages 23-47 (M=35.4). The results supported the hypothesis with a significant difference between groups of women that met the criteria of exercise and those women who did not meet the criteria of exercise (f=9.53, df=2, p<.003). Significant findings of altered sleep (p<.001), feelings of depression (p<.01), and difficulty getting up (p<.0003)were noted. Limitations were the small convenience sample of women from a family practice setting in a rural Midwestern city and 34 women who chose not to complete the surveys. Relevance to nursing, suggested that exercise have benefits in mental health and could provide useful information for nurse educators to encourage healthy lifestyles.
