  1. The table shows the results of the analyses of covariance (ANCOVA) to assess the influence of walking durations, as well as age, gender, and alcohol drinking habits as covariate factors, on the mental health indicators: the Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression Scale (CES-D), the Kessler Psychological Distress Scale (K6), and the Impact of Event Scale-Revised (IES-R) among health-conscious walkers
