[Quote No.60075] Need Area: Body > Exercise
"What's the one prescription that can lower your risk for 5 major diseases — with NO side effects? If you guessed exercise, you’re absolutely right! Exercise has the power to keep you from developing high blood pressure, diabetes, stroke, and some forms of cancer. In fact, exercise can lower your risk of heart disease as effectively as medications! It can also help ease arthritis pain, sharpen your memory, trim your waistline, and preserve your independence." - Lauren E. Elson, M.D.

[Quote No.60264] Need Area: Body > Exercise
"I'm a walker—that's what I do for recreation, relaxation, and relationship building. I think the practice started during my childhood days when we often took family walks on Sundays. We lived on a farm where everyone - adults and children - were busy working most of the day. In addition to the daily tasks of preparing meals and cleaning house, there were animals to be cared for, crops to plant and harvest, and then gardening and canning to be done. But Sunday was a day of rest; and a typical Sunday afternoon activity for us was taking a walk together. I remember these walks with fondness, as they gave us a time to be together in a relaxed sort of way. Later, after I became a mother, I introduced my daughters to the joys of walking. I started when they were still quite young - even before they were doing much walking on their own. I loaded them in a little red wagon and out the door we went. Sometimes, we just walked through the neighborhood; other times, we went to a park. We continued to walk as they got older, and I treasured these special times together. Sometimes, we'd begin our walk by talking about the weather or upcoming events, but soon our conversations turned to bigger issues in our personal lives and the larger world. I realize now that those walks became a path to a better understanding and appreciation of each other." - Ruth Wilson

[Quote No.60364] Need Area: Body > Exercise
"[Story - with a meaning about persistence and courage:-] - 'The Kansas Flyer' - Glenn Verniss Cunningham (August 4, 1909 – March 10, 1988) was an American distance runner and athlete considered by many the greatest American miler of all time. He received the James E. Sullivan Award as the top amateur athlete in the United States in 1933. He was born in Atlanta, Kansas, but grew up in Elkhart, Kansas. Cunningham was nicknamed the 'Kansas Flyer', as wll as the 'Elkhart Express' and the 'Iron Horse of Kansas'. Cunningham's legs were very badly burned in an explosion caused when someone accidentally put gasoline instead of kerosene in the can at his schoolhouse when he was eight and his brother Floyd was thirteen. Floyd died in the fire. When the doctors recommended amputating Glenn's legs, he was so distressed his parents would not allow it. The doctors predicted he might never walk normally again. He had lost all the flesh on his knees and shins and all the toes on his left foot. Also, his transverse arch was practically destroyed. However, his great determination, coupled with hours upon hours of a new type of therapy, enabled him to gradually regain the ability to walk and to proceed to run. It was in the early summer of 1919 when he first tried to walk again, roughly two years after the accident. He had a positive attitude as well as a strong religious faith. He competed in both the 1932 Summer Olympics as well as the 1936 Summer Olympics. While on the ship traveling from the U.S. to Germany, he was voted 'Most Popular Athlete' by his fellow Olympians. Cunningham won the Sullivan medal in 1933 for his various running achievements in middle distance. In the 1932 Olympics he took 4th place in the 1500 m, and in the 1936 Berlin Olympics, he took silver in the 1500 meters. In 1934, he set the world record for the mile run at 4:06.8, which stood for three years. In 1936, he set the world record in the 800 m run. In 1938, he set a world record in the indoor mile run of 4:04.4. He retired from competition in 1940. (Roger Bannister was the first to break the four-minute mile, in 1954.)" - wikipedia.org

[Quote No.60498] Need Area: Body > Exercise
"Walking for 2.5 hours a week - that's just 21 minutes a day - can cut your risk of heart disease by 30%. In addition, this do-anywhere, no-equipment-required activity has also been shown to reduce the risk of diabetes and cancer, lower blood pressure and cholesterol, and keep you mentally sharp. ...[Also] -- It counteracts the effects of weight-promoting genes. Harvard researchers looked at 32 obesity-promoting genes in over 12,000 people to determine how much these genes actually contribute to body weight. They then discovered that, among the study participants who walked briskly for about an hour a day, the effects of those genes were cut in half. -- It helps tame a sweet tooth. A pair of studies from the University of Exeter found that a 15-minute walk can curb cravings for chocolate and even reduce the amount of chocolate you eat in stressful situations. And the latest research confirms that walking can reduce cravings and intake of a variety of sugary snacks. -- It reduces the risk of developing breast cancer. Researchers already know that any kind of physical activity blunts the risk of breast cancer. But an American Cancer Society study that zeroed in on walking found that women who walked seven or more hours a week had a 14% lower risk of breast cancer than those who walked three hours or fewer per week. And walking provided this protection even for the women with breast cancer risk factors, such as being overweight or using supplemental hormones. -- It eases joint pain. Several studies have found that walking reduces arthritis-related pain, and that walking five to six miles a week can even prevent arthritis from forming in the first place. Walking protects the joints — especially the knees and hips, which are most susceptible to osteoarthritis — by lubricating them and strengthening the muscles that support them. -- It boosts immune function. Walking can help protect you during cold and flu season. A study of over 1,000 men and women found that those who walked at least 20 minutes a day, at least 5 days a week, had 43% fewer sick days than those who exercised once a week or less. And if they did get sick, it was for a shorter duration, and their symptoms were milder." - Harvard Medical School

[Quote No.60687] Need Area: Body > Exercise
"[Walking - steps: volume and intensity:] Your fitness tracker may nag you to reach '10,000 steps a day,' but if you can't meet this goal, don't give up hope - a new study finds that taking fewer steps may still bring health benefits, especially if you walk at a brisk pace. ... Generally, researchers recommend that people engage in 30 minutes of 'moderate intensity' physical activity every day, with 100 steps per minute being the minimum for moderate intensity. ... [Ideally you would meet both goals about the number and the intensity of steps per day!] " - Rachael Rettner

[Quote No.61441] Need Area: Body > Exercise
"And to exercise my memory, I follow the practice of the Pythagoreans and each evening go over everything I have said, heard, or done during the day. These are my mental gymnastics, the racecourses of my mind. And although I sweat and toil with them, I don't greatly miss my former bodily strength." - Marcus Tullius Cicero
Quote from his book, ‘On Old Age’, written in 44 B.C.

[Quote No.61752] Need Area: Body > Exercise
"[Mental exercise:] One of the core laws of neuroplasticity is that neurons that fire together wire together, meaning that repeated mental experience leads to structural changes in the brain neurons that process that experience, making the synaptic connections between those neurons stronger. In practical terms, when a person learns something new, different groups of neurons get wired together. As a child learns the alphabet, the visual shape of the letter A is connected with the sound 'ay.' Each time the child looks at the letter and repeats the sound, the neurons involved 'fire together' at the same time, and then 'wire together'; the synaptic connections between them are strengthened. Whenever any activity that links neurons is repeated, those neurons fire faster, stronger, sharper signals together, and the circuit gets more efficient and better at helping to perform the skill. The converse is also true. When a person stops performing an activity for an extended period, those connections are weakened, and over time many are lost. This is an example of a more general principle of plasticity: that it is a use-it-or-lose-it phenomenon. Thousands of experiments have now demonstrated this fact. Often the neurons that were involved in the skill will be taken over and used for other mental tasks that are now being performed more regularly. Sometimes one can manipulate the use-it-or-lose-it principle to undo brain connections that are not helpful, because neurons that fire apart wire apart. Suppose a person has formed a bad habit of eating whenever he is emotionally upset, associating the pleasure of food with the dulling of emotional pain; breaking the habit will require learning to disassociate the two. He might have to actively forbid himself from going to the kitchen when he is emotionally upset, until he finds a better way to handle his emotions." - Norman Doidge
Quote from his book, 'The Brain's Way of Healing: Remarkable Discoveries and Recoveries from the Frontiers of Neuroplasticity', published 2015, Page 8.
