Zung Self-Rating Depression Scale (SDS) was used to score the members’ life stress before and after swimming exercise. Data analysis included both descriptive statistical methods and paired sample t-test. This study has reached two conclusions as follows: (1) Males aged 26-39 with an occupation are usually night swimmers. (2) Swimming helps relieve life stress.
