Recently watched a great TED Talk by Steve Ilardi titled “Brain Chemistry Lifehacks”… looking at the impact ‘movement’ and exercise can have on your mindset.
He talks about how experience changes your brain. Unfortunately the majority of us sit for long periods at a time impacting our movement during the day. This is the ‘smoking’ of our time.
When you are physically active, neurotransmitters… like serotonin and dopamine light up enhancing energy, mood and motivation…
There are lots of other major benefits to keep active. This is well worth a watch…
As always. Think like an athlete.

Together with his research team, he has developed a novel program for clinical depression based on the premise that humans were not designed for modern life.
