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/

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.
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.
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.
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
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

As a child, there was a portrait in our family home in Paris that I always loved. Today, it’s known as Maya with Doll – but to me it was just a portrait of my mother, albeit a remarkable one. “Your grandfather was a painter,” she would say, whenever the subject of the canvas, one of many that hung around the house, came up in discussion. It was only when I began school, and whispers about my heritage started to follow me, that I realised what an understatement that was. My grandfather was far more than a painter. He was the defining figure of 20th-century art – and, as I would learn later from years of academic study, a true genius. It was a revelation that would shape the course of my life in many ways. When Picasso died – in 1973, the year before I was born – he left behind 45,000 works, not to mention personal objects and correspondence.
