"I loved the feeling of freedom in running, the fresh air, the feeling that the only person I'm competing with is me." - Wilma Rudolph
(1940 - 1994), Olympic gold medal winning athlete, who at four contracted polio, that required she walk only with a brace until age nine. It took another two years of therapy on her twisted leg before she could walk without orthopedic shoes. Four years later she won a bronze medal in the 4 x 100 meter relay at the 1956 Melbourne Olympic Games. In 1960 she took the gold in the same event at Rome, also in the 100 meter and 400 meter events.

[Quote No.46723] Need Area: Body > Exercise
"Our diet and lifestyle has a direct effect on our endocrine system. Our hormone regulation can change based on what we choose to eat and how we choose to live. Leptin and insulin are two powerful hormones that influence how energy is metabolized throughout the body. Exercise has been shown to increase sensitivity to both leptin and insulin, which is an important part of maintaining healthy homeostasis and natural energy regulation. ----About Leptin and Insulin: Leptin and insulin are the master hormones when it comes to weight control. Leptin, in particular, signals the brain to store or burn fat. Leptin is used by the body to regulate energy use through metabolism and appetite. Fasting or consuming too few calories on a regular basis can lower sensitivity to leptin, which leads to increased hunger, cravings and lack of energy. Along with leptin, insulin is another hormone that regulates how fat is used or stored in the body. When the body is sensitive to the actions of these hormones, natural homeostasis exists and weight is naturally regulated. However, cells in the body can become resistant to leptin and insulin. When this happens, the body requires higher and higher levels of these hormones to get across the proper signals. This often leads to a distorted appetite, poor energy levels, and unwanted fat gain. In the long term, it can also increase your risk for developing metabolic conditions like diabetes and heart disease. -----Exercise Improves Leptin and Insulin Sensitively: For years, research has shown that the benefits of exercise far exceed a simple equation of calories burned during activity. Exercise appears to have a powerful influence on our neurotransmitter and hormone levels, and what exercise you choose can determine how your body responds. Exercise and movement in general have a positive effect on leptin and insulin sensitivity. A study at the University of Florida has shown that modest exercise allows leptin to work properly, thereby reducing weight gain. Many experts believe that interval training in particular has a strong impact on the regulation of hormones like leptin and insulin. Short bursts of vigorous exercise interspersed throughout a moderate level workout appear to have long term positive effects on how these two key metabolic hormones are used in the body. Small studies have demonstrated that this type of exercise may in fact be the most effective both for fat loss and muscle growth. Simply starting with a walking program with intervals should kick-start one's leptin and insulin switches into their proper mode. As these hormones begin operating more efficiently, energy and appetite are better regulated, making good health easier than ever to achieve." - Elizabeth Walling

[Quote No.46726] Need Area: Body > Exercise
"[Exercise and leptin levels:] Low Leptin Levels Increase Risk of Age-Related Mental Decline: Researchers at Boston University School of Medicine recently discovered that individuals with lower levels of circulating leptin had an increased risk of dementia and Alzheimer's Disease (AD). Leptin, a hormone produced by the visceral and subcutaneous adipose (fat) tissue, is critical in regulating caloric intake and fat stores. As calories are consumed this powerful hormone is secreted into the circulatory system where it makes its way up to the hypothalamus. The hypothalamus contains specialized receptors within the metabolic control center that respond to leptin. Leptin's effect is to cause feelings of satiety [feeling full and reducing appetite] and to increase energy expenditure, particularly from stored body fat. Chronic inflammation from dietary stress, heavy metal toxicity, or environmental pollutants can damage the hypothalamaic leptin receptors, causing a condition called leptin resistance. Leptin resistance is characterized by an inability for the hypothalamus to respond to high circulating insulin levels. This causes increased appetite and weight gain. The new study suggests that leptin plays an important role in the hippocampus, a critical area that functions to facilitate memory processes. Results of the study showed that individuals with the highest levels of leptin had a 6% risk of developing AD [Alzheimer's Disease] during 12 years compared with a 25% risk for those with the lowest leptin levels. 'It's interesting and exciting because it's a new pathway that was not previously suspected to be directly involved in AD [Alzheimer's Disease] in humans,' said lead author Sudha Seshadri, MD, associate professor of neurology, Boston University School of Medicine in Massachusetts. Leptin is known to play a critical role in energy metabolism and has also been shown to stimulate angiogenesis (arterial formation). It is through this mechanism, by stimulating the hippocampus and increasing blood supply, that many believe the study results were produced. This new pathway gives us a better understanding of some of the key mechanisms behind age related memory loss and the increase in these conditions over the last 20 years. Leptin levels are influenced heavily by diet and lifestyle, which thus far have been relatively ignored by mainstream medicine. For example, several studies have shown that high fructose intake causes leptin resistance and elevated triglycerides in rats. High fructose corn syrup is virtually ubiquitous in the processed foods that make up much of the American diet. -----Balance Leptin Levels Naturally: --1. Reduce sugar and grain consumption: Sugar, high fructose corn syrup and heavy doses of grains such as wheat, oats, rice, and starchy vegetables will increase leptin resistance, while also limiting the body's ability to stimulate leptin release. --2. Avoid High Omega 6 fats and Trans-Fats: These fats inflame the body. --3. Healing Diet: Build your meals around non-starchy vegetables and healthy fats such as avocados, extra-virgin coconut and olive oils, grass-fed meat and free-range eggs, almonds, brazil nuts, pecans, walnuts, hemp, flax, and chia seeds. --4. Train For Maximal Fat Burning: High intensity exercise for short duration stimulates large secretions of human growth hormone, which enhances fat burning mechanisms and helps to modulate leptin levels. --5. Sleep Well: Leptin levels typically rise during sleep. Studies have shown that sleep deprivation decreases circulating leptin levels and leads to insensitivity, over-eating, weight-gain and mental decline. Best to eat 3-4 hours before bed and be in bed for sure by 11pm." - Dr. David Jockers

"[Walking:] Classification of pedometer-determined physical activity in healthy adults: --1) Under 5000 steps/day may be used as a ‘sedentary lifestyle index’ --2) 5,000-7,499 steps/day is typical of daily activity excluding sports/exercise and might be considered ‘low active.’ --3) 7,500-9,999 likely includes some exercise or walking (and/or a job that requires more walking) and might be considered ‘somewhat active.’ --4) 10,000 steps/day indicates the point that should be used to classify individuals as ‘active’ [equivalent to approximately 5 miles (8.0 km) with the average stride length of 2.5 ft]. --5) Individuals who take more than 12,500 steps/day are likely to be classified as ‘highly active’." - Dr. Catrine Tudor-Locke

[Quote No.46807] Need Area: Body > Exercise
"[Walking:] Pedometers can be a motivation tool for people wanting to increase their physical activity. Various websites exist to allow people to track their progress; however, many will also find entering their daily step count and a heart-beat count onto a calendar to be motivational as well. Pedometers have been shown in clinical studies to increase physical activity, and reduce blood pressure levels and Body Mass Index. A study published in the Journal of The American Medical Association Nov. 2007 concluded, ‘The results suggest that the use of a pedometer is associated with significant increases in physical activity and significant decreases in body mass index and blood pressure.’ A daily target of 10,000 steps was first proposed.[4] The target has been recommended by the US Surgeon General and by the UK Department of Health. The main criticisms of setting a universal target are that it is not achievable for older persons with mobility problems or people with chronic diseases, but on the other hand, the target is too low for children. One criticism of the pedometer is that it does not record intensity, but this can be done by making step goals time limited (for example, 1000 steps in 10 minutes counts as moderate exercise)." - Wikepedia.org

"[Walking:] Not walking or moving is hazardous to your health. Researchers studied a group of men that typically walk approximately 10,000 steps per day (as measured by a pedometer) and asked them to reduce their steps to only 1,350 per day. This meant taking elevators instead of stairs, driving to work and lunch. After two weeks, researchers found that the men’s bodies had become worse at metabolizing sugars and fats, not to mention that their distribution of body fat began to migrate toward their mid-section." - www.wikihow.com

[Quote No.46811] Need Area: Body > Exercise
"[Walking:] The recommended 10,000 steps a day originated in Japan in the early 1960s. Japanese researchers led by Dr Yoshiro Hatano determined the average person took 3,500 to 5,000 steps per day, and that if they were to increase their steps to 10,000 steps per day, the result would be healthier, thinner people! Dr. Hatano’s calculations also showed that we should walk 10,000 steps a day to burn about 20% of our caloric intake through activity. It took a couple more decades for the modern pedometer and Dr Yoshiro Hatano’s research of 10,000 steps to reach a wider audience, such as America, even though millions of Japanese had been using this amazingly simple but highly effective motivational tool for many years prior. With obesity steadily climbing due to inactivity and high consumptions of fast foods, it wasn’t until the early 90s that researchers and the consumer market turned to the humble pedometer and Dr Hatanos’ 10,000 step research to try to increase activity levels of the ever-growing inactive population. Today, the World Health Organisation (WHO), US Centre for Disease Control, US Surgeon General, American Heart Foundation, US Department of Health & Human Services, and the National Heart Foundation of Australia all recommend individuals take 10,000 steps a day to improve their health and reduce the risk of disease." - www.10000stepsaustralia.com

[Quote No.46836] Need Area: Body > Exercise
"How To Go From Sedentary to Fit: --Go S-L-O-W [when starting an exercise program]: Start ridiculously slowly! The key for me was monitoring my heart rate and not letting it go over 65% of the calculated maximum... --How to Set a Heart Rate Target: To calculate your own target heart rate, subtract your age from 220. This gives you the calculated maximum heart rate. For example, if you are 55, your calculated maximum heart rate would be 220 - 55, which is 165. Now to get an appropriate low intensity exercise heart rate, multiply this number by .65. This gives you the heart rate that is 65% percent of your maximum, which is the heart rate you should aim for when you first start out after being sedentary. For the person in the example, 165 times .65 is 107. So 107 beats per minute should be your target heart rate. To make sure you are reaching your heart rate, use machines at the gym that have a heart rate monitor built in or if you aren't exercising at a gym, invest in a heart rate monitor. They sell them in the sports section of many department stores. Just counting your pulse doesn't work very well when you are really out of shape since the rate can vary so much. --Start with Short Periods of Exercise and Add Time Gradually: When you exercise start out with a short period of exercise--15 minutes worked for me. Don't let your heart rate go above the 65% rate. Slow down to whatever speeds it takes to keep it there but don't stop without a cool down period. Gradually add five minutes to your daily routine. Do 15 minutes the first week, 20 minutes the next, 25 the next and then 30 the fourth week. --Increase Your Heart Rate Target: About six weeks in you should see a great improvement in how steady your heart rate stays as you exercise. Now start increasing your target heart rate. At first I raised my target from 108 to 112. I kept it there for a couple days. Then I slowly increased it a couple beats every few days until after nine weeks I worked up to a steady 133 which is a cardio heart rate for someone of my age. I started each session at a slow rate and gradually increase to my new high, giving my heart a chance to get used to the speed. As I exercised more it became harder and harder to push my heart rate up, a sure sign I was getting more fit!" - Jenny Ruhl

[Quote No.46908] Need Area: Body > Exercise
"Exercise boosts levels of health-promoting brain chemicals like serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine, which may help buffer some of the effects of stress and also relieve some symptoms of depression. Rather than viewing exercise as a tool merely for losing weight and preventing disease – all benefits that occur in the future – try viewing exercise as a daily tool to immediately enhance your frame of mind, reduce stress, and feel happier." - Dr. Joseph Mercola

Exercise is great to prevent and treat heart disease and risk factors for heart disease. Weight-bearing exercise is great for preventing osteoporosis and osteopenia. (And with walking, you’re the weight!) It can even improve your mood: Depression and other mood disorders can be lessened with exercise. But with the kids back in school, there are lunches to pack and after-school activities to carpool to, and it can feel like there’s no time. Something’s got to give. And that something is often your workout. ---- Get a pedometer. You can try to count your steps, but I bet you lose track before you hit 100. Put on a pedometer, and get moving! It’ll make you more mindful of your actions. Better yet, get enough pedometers for your whole family and make it a game. Most of our kids enjoy trying to beat us at our own game, right? Put a little healthy competition to work—for your health! ---- Check your progress. If the number on your pedometer is below 2,000 steps and it’s already mid-morning, then you know you’re going to have to make an effort today. Look again before you get home at the end of the day. If you’re still not above 7,000, then you’d better get going. Think of errands that you could walk to. Perhaps you need to take the dog out again. Or stroll around the block with your child. ---- Walk your kids to school. If you are one of the lucky few who can actually walk your kids to school, then I strongly encourage you to do this. It’s a simple way to sneak in some distance, saves on gas and is a great way to start the day. ---- Do a drop-in. If you are at work, get up to see a colleague instead of texting them, emailing them, calling them or instant messaging them. Have a walking meeting instead of a phone call. ---- Skip the lift. Walk up and down stairs instead of taking the elevator. Too high to climb? Take the elevator up in the morning, then walk down on your way out. ---- Park farther away. You don’t have to ditch your car to keep moving. Leave it a five or ten minute walk from the office. Taking public transportation? Get off a stop early or a stop late so you have to walk a bit extra. ---- Browse more. If you’re in a store, walk up and down all the aisles even if you know where to find the item you’re looking for. [---- Take a walk before or after lunch and/or dinner.] Being more mindful of your goal will help you to reach it. And it’s a wonderful feeling to see that pedometer ring in at 10,000 steps!" - Carolyn Richardson

[Quote No.47362] Need Area: Body > Exercise
"[Martial Arts and Self-Defense:] Matt Furey - world-class martial artist and top Internet marketer - credits visualization for his success. Matt's wrestling coach told the scrawny, uncoordinated high school teen he never had a chance. But by using the power of visualization, Matt gained the confidence to win match after match - and became a champion wrestler in high school and college. Later, Matt became World Kung Fu Champion - thanks, again, to visualization and the very positive attitude that was now buried deep in his limbic brain (the part of the brain involved in emotional behaviour)." - Michael Masterson

"[Martial Arts and Self-Defense/Self-Defence:] Martial arts and philosophy [with the latter being a wise understanding and practice of living with but more importantly beyond fighting] have always gone hand in hand [as both are necessary to help individuals and groups survive and thrive!]... all of today’s Asian martial arts were developed to embody and apply philosophical ideas....

[Quote No.48879] Need Area: Body > Exercise
"Research on physical activity finds that exercise increases self-confidence, which in turn strengthens self-evaluations. Regular exercise, including brisk walks, directly increases happiness 12 percent, and can indirectly make a dramatic contribution to improving self-image." - Fontane 1996

[Quote No.50792] Need Area: Body > Exercise
"[Exercise improves mental health and positive mood:] In a landmark study affectionately called SMILE (Standard Medical Intervention and Long-term Exercise), James Blumenthal and his colleagues [at Duke University] pitted exercise against the SSRI sertraline (Zoloft) in a sixteen-week trial... Blumenthal concluded that exercise was as effective as medication. ... Researchers tracked 8,023 people for twenty-six years, surveying them about a number of factors related to lifestyle habits and healthiness starting in 1965. They checked back in with the participants in 1974 and in 1983. Of all the people with no signs of depression at the beginning, those who became inactive over the next nine years were 1.5 times more likely to have depression by 1983 than their active counterparts. ... A massive Dutch study of 19,288 twins and their families published in 2006 showed that exercisers are less anxious, less depressed, less neurotic, and also more socially outgoing. A Finnish study of 3,403 people in 1999 showed that those who exercise at least two to three times a week experience significantly less depression, anger, stress, and 'cynical distrust' than those who exercise less or not at all." - John J. Ratey and Eric Hagerman

[Quote No.50795] Need Area: Body > Exercise
"Sustained physical exercise, whether it be running or swimming or cycling or other aerobic activity, has well-known health benefits, including improvements in the function of the cardiovascular, pulmonary, and endocrine systems. Voluntary exercise is also associated with long-term improvements in mental function and is the single best thing one can do to slow the cognitive decline that accompanies normal aging. Exercise has a dramatic antidepressive effect. It blunts the brain's response to physical and emotional stress. A regular exercise program produces a large number of changes in the brain, including the new growth and branching of small blood vessels and increases in the geometric complexity of some neuronal dendrites. It is associated with a host of interrelated biochemical changes as well, including increases in the level of a key protein called BDNF (brain-derived neurotrophic factor)." - David J. Linden, Ph.D.

"[Use mental exercises to delay the ravages of age, for example dementias - on intellectual acuity:] If I had to live my life again I would have made a rule to read some poetry and listen to some music at least once a week; for perhaps the parts of my brain now atrophied could thus have been kept active through use." - Charles Darwin

[Quote No.52883] Need Area: Body > Exercise
"[Poem: about enjoying simple, natural pleasures, while getting some necessary daily exercise, for example, with a walk.]

'Rendezvous'

For just a brief while every day
I steal away from duty
And leave the indoor tasks undone
To keep a tryst with beauty.

Bird-song and lily-bell
Tinkling thin and sweet;
Sun-gold and starry bloom
Flashing at my feet;
Cool mist, with crystal beads
Gleaming everywhere
Wild plum and pink thorn
Hanging on the air.

Swiftly, then, I can return
To tread the rounds of duty,
Since for one fleet breath I stood
Hand-in-hand with beauty.

" - Mary Scott Fitzgerald
