And never think about doing so But intend to start Try to exercise

  1. Abbreviations: CI confidence interval, OR odds ratio, SPSI-R Social Problem-Solving Inventory–Revised
  2. The outcomes were higher for SPSI-R
  3. Multivariate ORs were adjusted for age in years (continuous variable), and living alone (yes or no)
