  3. Question: How would this relate to a consistent weight lifting regimen? Not a high intensity session but more so for strength. Can the same results be accomplished because of the strain and difficulty of the workout or does it have to be a faster paced workout to experience this?

  4. Great post. Couple of questions:
    1) we know that there are different types of depression, ie, situational and longer-term more chronic and recurring depressive disorders. I know people that have been diagnosed with the later that are regular, habitual exercisers – yet they still struggle with bouts of severe depression. Wondered if the research has taken a look at the different categories and if so, what are the findings?
    2) any advice on how to deal with my 2 parts – one that wants the results of exercise but the other part that doesn’t want to exercise at all! Sounds crazy, doesn’t it?

    1. Ha ha GB, not crazy at all. I’m sure many people can identify with your 2 conflicted parts about exercising. Great question about depression, let’s see what Dr. Ratey will say.

  5. Questions for John –
    If you get your heart rate up to the appropreiate level, can you get the same benefits by doing 6 ten minute workouts in a day as an hour all at once at the same level of intensity?

    Thanks,

  6. Inspirational video! My question on Feb 27 2018: How can I maintain my current fitness and weight level? I bought a new dog last August and began walking regularly with her. My health and flexibility improved as well as my eating habits . However, I seem to be slowly adding some of my old eating habits back into my diet. Thanks!

    1. Hi Margaret, so good to hear from you! I’d love to hear your questions about exercise and academic performance, based on your experiences as a public school teacher.

How many calories do I need?

When people find out I am a registered dietitian with degrees in nutrition, they often ask me “How many calories do I need?” For years, I struggled to find a good answer. “It depends” seems evasive. A generic response such as “between 1600 and 2400 calories for women, 2000 to 3000 for men” is well,

Feeling entrepreneurial burnout

Burnout: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know

In fall of 2013 I led a sales team of seven people, traveled half the time for work, managed eighteen million dollars of business to exceed our sales goal by ten percent, finished the first draft of my novel, scheduled round-the-clock caregivers for my dying father, helped him plan his funeral, and bicycled 55 miles

An Easy Exercise To Do At Home

It started this time last year after three friends and I celebrated Cinco de Mayo at a Mexican restaurant. Although we enjoyed ourselves, we ate a lot, and as we stared at empty bowls of chips and salsa we agreed we needed more exercise. “Jumping rope is an easy exercise to do at home!” I
