Awesome video, We need more scientists like you to spread awareness regarding extraordinary brain-changing effects of exercise. I also did my literature search on this topic and have written a post regarding the benefits of exercise on learning and memory. If you are a student , you should definetly check it out. https://caffeinoma.com/2018/10/22/run-fast-to-learn-fast/ Dr Sarthak from caffeinoma.com

The thing is you have to have fun doing the exercise, you have to wake up in the morning eager to go to exercise, if not is not gonna last and if it last is going to be a torture which defeats the purpose. Dance lessons are a great alternative, you do much more exercise than you ever thought possible, you are having fun and you have multiple more benefits like socializing etc. Lindy Hop is great and you have a very big scene worldwide.

Does physical activity help reduce the neurogenic pain ?
I started seeing a therapist for trauma recovery work. The first “homework” assignment she gave was to engage in some sort of cardio workout three times a week. We’re a couple months into this process now and I do circuit training 5 times a week and run with my dogs 3 or 4 times a week. My exercise regimen has been a life saver, particularly whilst processing the memories and feelings around my trauma. What I can say for certain it has helped regulate my mood, I sleep better and it forces me to eat regularly.

Can someone point me to some of the studies that show it increases your levels of neurotransmitters and the study that showed an improvement in focus and reaction time? I think I'll write my essay on this, super interesting.

What about people that don't get that good feeling from exercise? You know, that one thing that she got at the beginning... The one thing that drove her to continue and return... I spent 6 months regularly going to the gym: I felt miserable every time. No endorphin release at any point during or afterward. I think it's a myth that everybody is capable of such an experience. I envy nobody more than those that are addicted to running.
Jarel Hayes (17 days ago)
+Michael McCallum Yes, I think so. I can recall running, biking, swimming, rock climbing, weight lifting, yoga, and Kung Fu.

Michael McCallum (17 days ago)
How about you try challenging yourself and witnessing it firsthand? Stop waiting for a reason to get fit, Kurosaki. You'll never be a decent soul reaper with that attitude. I AM SOUL REAPER STRONG
Stacey Gantt (23 days ago)
Wow... My doctor prescribed exercise for my depression instead of pills. It took a little under a year, but it worked for me. I can't believe someone actually studies this. I do cardio and weight lifting and frequently I think to myself, I was once depressed, couldn't work and didn't want to eat, and all it took was an exercise routine! But, I know a few people that must have medicine for treatment to live a normal life. SRI, SRNI imbalances and low vitamin D levels can require medication.
Michael McCallum (17 days ago)
Now imagine all of the poor souls who get prescribed antidepressants when exercise and diet can change their lives. It's a terrible sight.

大石金曜日 (26 days ago)
why is people complaining about her speech? you think this is an old idea but yet don't put it on practice 😏 I think this idea is still innovative because she as a scientist and it might seem like she is intelligent enough to have no struggle in her research. However, she does struggles, and like anyone else needs an energy booster which is exercise, which also happens to improve you memory and gives you other benefits for your daily life
Michael McCallum (17 days ago)
I think people want to experience the benefits without even trying. Their own skepticism kills them.

I have an auto immune disorder where my immune system kills my platelets, I don't even have 15% of the normal count of platelets a healthy person would have. Platelets transport serontonin and since I lack the transporter, I am prone to depression. Instead of going on steroids like my hematologist wanted, I concreted my workout routine, turned my diet around (salmon and tomatoes boost serontonin) and I can tell you, depression can't even touch me

For everyone who hates excercise, try yoga. It pops your joints , calms you down, and makes you feel attentive. I just started yoga and I’m down half a pound. =)

when you say exercise increases number of cells in hypo campus where is a study to prove it lady? You must support your statements jeez

Well... the study is debunked due to small sample size N=1 You can’t make generalization just because you experiencing these events doesn’t proof it will be the same for others.
