  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.

Do You Really Need to Journal to be Healthy?

I know people who are brave enough to adopt a strict diet, and severely restrict their calorie intake or eliminate entire basic food groups, but aren’t willing to journal. Why is that? Why resist journaling? And do you need to journal to be healthy? In my opinion, yes, you need to journal to be healthy.

A Gratitude Journal Transformed My Mountain Biking Failure

This winter a gratitude journal transformed my mountain biking failure. It all started when I signed up for a group mountain bike ride called “Beginner ride, no mountain biking skills needed.” I’ve been road biking for years. I do not ride fast, compared to the lean, cheerful MAMILs one finds in bike clubs. (Middle Aged

Four Ways to Overcome Holiday Stress

Overcome holiday stress this year by choosing what gets your attention. When I wrote my Christmas letter this year I celebrated five wonderful highlights of 2020.
