The short bouts of exercise you get throughout the day all count toward the recommended daily exercise guidelines. Science Says: Short Bursts of Exercise Can Help You Live Longer chevron_left PREV: Shrimp Fried Quinoa with Egg W. By Jodi Helmer. Short Bursts of Exercise Can Help You Live Longer..

When it comes to the health benefits of walking, every step counts. The short bouts of exercise you get throughout the day — a 10-minute walk to the train station; a 5-minute hike up the stairs to the office and the 20-minute post-work power walk — all count toward the recommended daily exercise guidelines. It seems there is good evidence for the efficacy of very short bursts of strenuous anaerobic exercise, such as sprinting or cycling hard, followed by a brief recovery period. Interval training may. Let’s start with claims that exercise can extend life spans.

If exercise is a powerful anti-aging supplement, then we would expect Olympic athletes to live longer than any of us. Simone Biles. The whole point of HIIT is to work at maximum capacity in short bursts so if you’re working out for longer than 30 minutes you might not actually. What’s the most transformative thing that you can do for your brain today? Exercise! says neuroscientist Wendy Suzuki.

Get inspired to go to the gym as Suzuk. Exercise can help fix a “broken” metabolism, especially during maintenance “People used to come into the doctor’s office and say, ‘My metabolism is broken!’” says James Hill, PhD, at the University. “Our approach can help Calico immensely and if their approach is successful it can help me live longer,” explains Venter. “We hope to be the reference centre at the middle of everything.”. Scientists believe caloric restriction stimulates a defense state in the body designed to help us survive environmental and metabolic adversity. Studies in animal trials suggest it may protect telomere length by contributing to a decrease of oxidative stress.

The study did find that students were better off if they slept during “nighttime” hours, but it defined those hours as 10 pm to 10 am. As Charles Czeisler, M.D., chief of the Sleep and Circadian.

And the main reason for greater longevity in people who exercise is that they get less cardiovascular disease.

Although it is true that an endurance exercise program can reduce a number of the risk factors associated with cardiovascular disease, only limited information supports the contention that people will live longer if they exercise regularly.

So far, about all science knows about exercise and aging is that there seems to be an inverse relationship between older people’s volume of exercise and their risk of premature death, regardless of the cause.4 In other words, the more you exercise, the less likely you are to die early.

  • Thinking about #8, what are your thoughts about using positions of financial privilege or stability (if we are in them during covid) to shop with the intention of helping people who own small businesses and stores? To what extent can we help our communities by keeping the economy going, while being personally responsible?

  • There are many prescribed yoga in indian culture.
    which already researched by indian ancestors. PROUD be a indian bcz we don’t need to research again and waste time

  • Chelsea: “We all love to feel that we have a level of control over our lives and love to plan everything (especially those of you who watch TFD)”
    Me: I think I’ve been called out…

  • Video actually starts at 2:30. Biggest annoyance with this channel is the unnecessarily looooooooong intros. Get on with it already!!

  • I felt so seen by Chelsea’s depression validation that I started crying. Nonetheless, I am very happy to see how much more herself/at peace Chelsea looks in videos since Mark was able to come home:)

  • Mostly cardio, especially! I’m survivor of GBMIV and owed it to intense/heavy exercise and strict nutrition habits, getting rid of sugar, animal products, etc. (By the way, I’m 68 and I exercise everyday, half marathon is my forte!)
    Every single patient of any sickness, should start exercising. Let the blood carry oxygen to fix your problem!

  • They lost me with the movements without proper human/animated demonstration for all the excercise. I learn/follow differently I gueas.

  • Does anyone know any resources I can look at for interest-free/low interest loans for debt due to COVID? I was scammed by one of my best “friends” and now I’m $9,500 in the hole and it’s going to default by Sept 8th? Or start getting 20% interest if I do make the minimum payment. I’m so desperate I literally started a GoFundMe. Help!!!!

  • I decided to take a break from all social media at the beginning of July, and it was a great choice for me. It’s amazing how much I don’t miss it at all. Also, I love the feeling of just doing things that I love without thinking how I’m going to post it in the back of my mind.

  • If someone wants to shop, buying a reasonably priced generator to keep their refrigerator or freezer going during hard times might be something to look at. Just saying. Thanks for the wonderful videos!

  • It would be great to have little videos of a person actually doing the exercises, as how to do them was not clear to me. This video would benefit from being upgraded.

  • It’s hard to feel productive enough if the covid adjustments of university consists of converting group work into individual work without decreasing the amount of work.

  • Isn’t it the same feel to wrap up a project that has been at the back of the closet or cleaning up the house giving you the same endorphins as buying online?

  • Thank You dear sister!!! Ive been a wreck latelynothing but crying eating and sleeping.Im taking your suggestions to heart and will be more mindful of the negative habits im into.I HOPE YOU STAY SAFE!!

    Exercise #1. Goldfish exercise 0:38
    Exercise #2. Exercise for capillary circulation 2:58
    Exercise #3. Joining your palms and soles 4:14
    Exercise #4. Spine and stomach exercise 7:27

  • My social activities have massively increased during Covid.

    But then that’s not hard when a) xou live in the country that went out of lockdown pretty fast and b) I compare myself to winter 2019/2020 when I had next to no social activities going on thanks to… dealing with emotional stuff.

  • You literally decay and have to deal with your brain leaving you. Terrifying and gross. Applesauce head and wrinkly skin can’t wait ����

  • Most exercise happens outdoors. Sunshine makes Vitamin D and “D” makes serratonin and thats the chemical that allows you to cope with life’s problems. Alcoholism is worse in northern Russia and not bad %wise in southern Russia. Scandinavian countries know about their low D because of lack of sunlight. So they have sun lamps that allow UV rays to make D in their skin. It gets transported into the blood system and the liver and kidneys do one more chemical process apiece to make circulating D and therefore biologically active. No such thing as fibromyalga.. those symptoms are the same as very low D

  • I hate that 99% of my adds are from mindvally. I am saturated. I hate this ad about the journey that will make me uncomfortable. I love to stretch my self. I love to grow and expand. I love to elevate my consciousness. But I love comfort, if you are familiar with Carol Tuttle’s she has an energy profiling system. I am a 2 with secondary 4. Guess what comfort is my first need. This ad irritates me. And makes me unhappy. Google is bothering me with it because of my subscription in this channel. I am about to hate mindvally and YouTube because of it. I love my comfort. But I grow and expand. I am not stuck in comfort zone. Stop mixing things up. It really hurts.
    # 2 this ad is extremely noise. I love calmer stuff. Please. Thanks in advance.

  • And spend your dollars to make things better (local, sustainable, etc) rather than make Bezos go from insanely ridiculously rich to extra insanely ridiculously rich (buy things on Amazon. I promise Ebay is fine! And there’s promo codes for brand specific sites)

  • I am just curious if someone is infected after 2 weeks they will have dead skin cells even scratching their arm for example would float dust everywhere. Can you skin cell spread the virus

  • Due to Covid I have really went back to reading books about personal finances and falling down the rabbit hole of YouTube videos about skincare and personal finances outside of working. Also, doing Zoom with friends and spending time with my mom, siblings, nieces and nephews.

  • I live in Melbourne so I’m restricted to only leaving my house once per day for a maximum of an hour, going no further than 5km from our house. It has been SUPER hard here, I moved here three weeks before shit hit the fan and we got locked down so I haven’t had the chance to form that friendship circle. It’s horrible as well because all of my friends and family live in other time zones. So when it comes to completely isolating, I really don’t have any other option and it’s rubbish.

  • Two points. Except for alcohol and internet-related items that didn’t exist when I was 30, I would have felt that way if COVID-19 had happened. But as a 71 year-old, even without the virus, I see many of my fellow seniors falling into that pattern. I’m lucky that I have a final base of friends and I’m pretty comfortable with the Internet but I have had to stop reading negative comments on different platforms. Some of you who feel isolated may want to pick up the phone and call older relatives or neighbors. Some conversations might be boring for you but it’s a good deed. You might even discover that some old folks are pretty interesting. I’ll just add that I love young people like you because you are struggling more than we did but you still keep going.

  • Basically the gold fish exercise can be done by using the Chi machine.
    I have been using it for a while, it helps in reducing body pain, toning muscles etc.

  • My coping mechanism is bing watching the X Files. I have just finished watching season 8 and am about to start season 9 for about the third time since the start of the year. I have also been chain drinking coffee as well.

  • Think of all the doctor appointments you might have and how late the doctors typically run on their appointment schedule. Take that time sitting in the waiting room and convert it into exercise time. Soon enough you won’t need to sit in the waiting room. Own your health!

  • Lost my job temporarily….for nearly a year (worked on Broadway), so my mental health has really taken a toll while hoping that my job comes back next year. But… I have to wait til next year. I definitely struggled with not feeling productive enough in the beginning because of how much time I have and the negative impact of those thoughts. But now I’m struggling with feeling like I actually should have done more.

  • Care to provide the sources of these claims and that Japanese research? Thanks. Sorry to say it out loud but without proper citing, this sounds like a sponsored clip.

  • I’m here going yep, yep, did that, felt that, still doing that. K I’ll try to stop being so self deprecating and spewing out of control now that I know I’m not the only one. ��

    This was exactly what I needed to hear. Thank you, Chels! ����

  • One of the best gifts I have ever done for myself and mental health was deleting all social media. I still have YouTube to watch and Pinterest to scroll through. But limiting even those platforms and trying to have discipline for myself on how long I watch/scroll has helped tremendously. These things happened before Covid, but it is such a freeing feeling. I get my news from Apple. I still get anxiety and angry from reading specific articles Of course, but I don’t have to see how uneducated people around me truly are. Using this time to be mindfully productive. Thanks for your videos!

  • This quarentine made some people realize the importance of self care, but it’s always been this important. I remember watching one of your old videos is how I learned about the importance of real self care.

  • As someone who works at a liquor store I can confirm that people are absolutely drinking more. Our sales numbers have been crazy, christmas-level high for the last 4 months. Although, I do feel people are slowing down a little now. Thankfully.

    (I went sober during covid!)

  • This was precious, couldn’t stop smiling while seeing the public doing the exercises and screaming. This just motivated me to continue my routines. Thank you❤️

  • Too much talk and not enough demostration. I was lost at exercise one. The music, silly animated animals, and irritating voice of the narrator
    was not helpful at all. I was really hyped because I wanted to do and understand these exercises. Thumbs down!

  • Ahh, the answer is in the question if you think far enough: Grant writing is the practice of completing an application process for a financial grant provided by an institution such as a government department, corporation, foundation, or trust. Such application processes are often referred to as either a grant proposal or a grant submission.

  • Join Chelsea and Yanely Espinal at next week’s workshop to learn how to overcome obstacles, setbacks, or late starts to create your very own financial “first aid kit.”

  • Her somewhat arrogant sounding remark towards the end of her talk really turned me off when she touts herself as a “memory pioneer”… which tellingly comes just minutes after an earlier remark she makes about herself when she says something along the lines of, “I’m really recognized and known for all the great work I did on memory and the hippocampus.” Slightly ruined it for me.

  • 100 years ago, swami vivekananda said, “You will be nearer to Heaven through football than through the study of the Gita.” Now science is saying same thing.

  • It’s simply like to burn firecracker which lasts for a while after that it just an ash, As more rapid our flame aggravates the more it ends. In another way, Meditation gives the realm of continuous flame of inspiration, it has powerful impact.

  • I have definitely been a culprit of panic retail shopping so this month i have given myself the challenge of not spending on craft supplies. I am still working full time with a 6 year old at home. I have little time to use the things i have without adding a bunch of new things. Though I have been good about saving the money I am not spending on child care or travelling to work. So swings and roundabouts there.

  • I picked up a new hobby as a defense mechanism against shopping too much from the comfort of my couch. Turns out this hobby needs equipment…

  • YES, Absolutely!! Folks in Exercise Science have known this for a long time. I did my graduate research on Aerobic Fitness and Stress perception. Subjects who had high aerobic fitness rated their perception of stress much less, at the time of the stressor and also later they recovered much faster ad better than low fit subjects. There was not significant difference between moderately fit subjects and low/high fit. But once you can high aerobic fitness then the brain is impacted positively. I used Ken Cooper’s times run/walk to put subjects in the fitness categories. This was some years ago, 1980’s. Tons of research supports this. Exercise is the best thing you can do.

  • Thanks a million, Wendy this is helpful and fascinating! As many of us have to deal with some type of depression or low mood especially in these times.

  • True story: on his way to Leipzig, Carl Friedrich Gauß met a Young man while driving in the carriage. The young man talked about his genius idea and showed him a booklet with many drawings showing a a figure doing a multitude of physical exercises with some kind of thing in his hands, later known as dumbbells. Gauß studied the booklet, then threw it out of the window with the words: stupid nonsense.

  • I really appreciate that Chelsea addressed “not feeling productive enough”. I went through a whole phase back in March and the first few months were rough when I realized I had such a toxic relationship with myself and “needing” to work in order to feel productive or worthy. I’ve also been a little guilty of isolating myself by not responding to friends or leaving messages unread longer than I normally would, and this video is a good reminder to continue staying in touch with people.

  • No co-ordination between goldfish movements and actual explanation, i wonder if they checked this before making it available to public

  • “Bringing exercise into your life will not only give you a more productive and happier life today but it will protect your brain”

    “Exercise is the most transformative thing you can do for your brain”

  • The pandemic finally got me to realize how much I was already voluntarily isolating myself, that I had significant depression and that I wasn’t going to change either of those predicaments without consulting professional help.

  • iPhones also have a screen time feature in your settings where you can limit your time on apps. It’s been great for me to regulate my time.

  • Salah (Arabic term for Muslim Ritual/Islamic prayer) is a spiritual practice performed by Muslim believers which must be performed at least five times a day. Prayer involves physical body movement (like Yoga/Exercise)

  • 1. Feeling ashamed of not being productive “enough.”

    2. Refreshing your newsfeed every 10 minutes

    3. Drinking more than you normally would

    4. Isolating yourself completely

    5. Throwing structure completely out the window

    6. Not moving at all

    7. Engaging with the comments

    8. Panic retail shopping

  • It is important to note that there is an upper limit to how much you should workout and that over training can lead to bad mental effects such as fatigue and depression.

  • sometimes we wonder how to change our brain, with a deep searching i found something call Neuroplasticity it is how to change your brain by changing your thoughts

  • I’ve lost multiple family members, a best friend, a job, and a significant other during this pandemic. In turn I’ve gotten a promotion elsewhere and feel liberated to realize my dreams. I remain steadfast and y’all should to. We got this, TFD fam!

  • One bad habit I started was spending more as a way to do something, I’ve since started the hobby of creating a YouTube channel in order to combat that and I’m loving it so far!

  • I stopped using social media because it’s true!! Social media can be very destructive & if is not useful for now… Why use it?
    I still stay in contact with friends through zoom, messages & believe it or not PHONE CALLS!!! ������ ��

  • 30 seconds? Well I do 25 mintues 6 times a week and I feel like a Demi-God. The power of thinking can be great but actions always speak louder than words. Thanks Mindvalley for this tip

  • I’m sitting in hospital bed post knee replacement. Cannot move legs right now. But l those exercises sitting up in bed and they are awesome.

  • This video is so disappointing. #1 goldfish doesn’t make sense, no demo, poor explanation. I had to stop and searched for better info.

  • Haven’t watched the video yet but one thing I’m struggling with is agreeing to do a ridiculous amount of overtime because I’m worried about losing my job

  • I’ve been trying not to impulse shop online and I’ve gotten a lot better with it, however today I caved and bought something expensive (but not ridiculously so). It’s an item I’ve been toying with buying for a while, which is a sewing machine (a useful item especially since we are probably going to be wearing masks for a long time and I’m short so hemming clothes is a must). I’m an extremely lucky I still have a job and I’ve been paying down debt and saving like crazy, so I don’t feel too guilty about it and I hope to make a return on my investment if I can sell masks or any creations online.

  • My father had a motor neurone disease showing up in early 2018. He would exercise a lot. When he stopped in mid of 2019, the disease overtook him and reduced him to bones. A fact he recognised and told us. Hope a miracle happens and he once regains the sensory functions and goes back to being fit and healthy ��

  • I kept my bedtime and wakeup routines as well as most of my mealtimes and exercise routines also just to give me structure during the day.

  • Where in your day will you fit this in?

    Learn how to biohack your age and live longer in Ben’s FREE MASTERCLASS ��

  • Interesting video (however, if I follow the idea that we should filter people who are not experts on social media, then why listen to Chelsea talking about mental health?)

  • This is very interesting as far as the chemistry goes. But believe me, living long is overrated.

    I ate healthy as of age 24 and indeed I’ve had no health issues, no blood sucking doctors or medications. Most of my life without exploitative over priced medical insurance, didn’t need it.
    However living past 70 unless you are rich has no meaning. You become invisible to most of society around age 60-65 and in today’s world despite health and genius you are pushed out of the work place as of age 50.

    I will soon end my life. Not because I am depressed nor unhealthy. Simply because I have no more money and have no wish to join the ranks of homeless living on the streets. I Receive no pension/social security. Not that such things pay anything near the cost of living.

    Laws against age discrimination are worthless, no employer will say you are not being hired due to age. They have enough other rubbish excuses.

  • I’ve been reading about this since the 90s. And I’ve put it to test it works. It’s actually healthier to work out in spur like a sprint out. I’ve maintain my body weight all theses years and feel and people tell me I look great for my age. I do have some weaknesses in food I could do better. Hehe. But what this video is saying works for me.

  • I felt so called out with the alcohol. I’m a social drinker, but the stress of covid and family drama, made me hit the bottle a bit too hard the last few months.  I had a really, really bad night wherein everything I was feeling compounded and I didn’t know what else to do, but reach for that to try and numb it all out. The hangover from that was not worth it, and I put it away. It’s been 3 weeks since that night.

  • My need to feel productive stems from my toxic manager, in early March-April she was “understanding” but now her tune has changed and is demanding everyone push out the same productivity despite the cut in our hours/salaries �� So I had to stop myself from logging in from home on my days off to keep up.

  • If anyone needs help on this system and you are in Los Angeles you are welcome on my seminars and boot camps. I am doing this for 25 years.

  • As a neuro scientist out of the box thinking has led her to come to the conclusion that physical exercise is inevitable in our daily lives to be healthy!

  • I don’t know how or when I did, but I turned off the notifications for youtube replies. Sometimes I enjoy joining in on a conversation under a video, particularly if I find it helpful or interesting, but it’s the reply notifications that I found stressful. Once I turned it off, it feels like I can just drop my bit, leave, and never look back. It’s awesome. Unless I check back on this video I won’t see any replies to this comment either.

  • Ah Chelsea! When I make an inspiration board and come back to a purchase I want it more than ever plus everything else that I perfectly curated on it! ��

  • 7:00 “we havent been in the pandemic very long”…. im usually on board with you but…. auuuuhhhhhh chels babe we HAVE been in a pandemic for half a year now…

  • Thank you Chelsea, for keeping me from spiraling! Also ya ll, I wanted to write notes to family members…. and I’m still waiting to do it, ugh ��

  • It’s simple science: When you walk, you’re doing what we evolved to do, to survive. So the brain, knowing it is in its natural element, will focus more, to survive. It’s good.

  • Financial channels have the worst subscriber to views ratio and that SUCKS! When I checked to see how many subs this channel had I was astounded.

  • Bright side, change your channel initial sound. It’s so brash �� Literally speaking, I and so many other will watch your videos more interestingly,if you do so. Take it as my core hearted request.
