The new book by neurologist Peter A. Sacks shows why, in some cases, bowling is not the answer to anxiety and depression, and that’s despite its health benefits.
A study by the University of Maryland Medical Center, which is a member of the National Institutes of Health, found that women who were not bowling for stress relief had more anxiety symptoms than those who did, but did not have the type of anxiety disorder known as generalized anxiety disorder.
The book, titled “Bowling with Anxiety: Why We Love and Learn from It,” examines how many people have an instinctive connection to bowling.
They’re able to relate to it because they know how it feels and how it motivates them.
They also feel a kinship with it.
It’s hard to tell if this instinctive attachment is real or just a coping mechanism, according to Sacks.
He said the research has to be interpreted on its own.
“I do think it’s the best explanation of bowling that we have,” he said.
“I don’t think it explains it completely.
It does explain why bowling has been shown to help with depression.”
The research suggests bowling may be a way to get away from your anxiety.
“Bowling is a way of getting away from the anxiety,” Sacks said.
Sacks is one of a handful of experts on bowling who have studied the phenomenon for more than 25 years.
He believes it has some of the health benefits of a physical activity.
He believes the research backs up the notion that bowling is beneficial to mental health, but he does not want to go down that path.
“If I’m a person who’s a little bit anxious and depressed, I might have a couple of bad bowling sessions, or I might get a headache or a sore throat,” Sack said.
But he said it could also help people with mental health issues.
“In terms of mental health and anxiety disorders, it’s important to understand the relationship between bowling and mental health,” Sacking said.
