Why We Sign Up For Gym Memberships But Never Go To The Gym

Why We Sign Up For Gym Memberships But Never Go To The Gym | Tetra Health | Scoop.it
Gyms have built their business model around us not showing up. Gyms have way more members than they can actually accommodate. Low-priced gyms are the most extreme example of this. Planet Fitness, which charges between $10 and $20 per month, has, on average, 6,500 members per gym. Most of its gyms can hold around 300 people. Planet Fitness can do this because it knows that members won't show up. After all, if everyone who had a gym membership showed up at the gym, it would be Thunderdome. If you are not going to the gym, you are actually the gym's best custom

For the $10 a month mentioned in the article, for 10 months, you can buy a set of adjustable dumbbells and a good exercise bench that will last for years and allow you to do all the strength training you need at home. For cardio, open your door and take a walk...or get a pound puppy to force you out the door.

The Most Important Thing You Can Do In The New Year To Lose Weight, Get Sharper And Live Longer

The Most Important Thing You Can Do In The New Year To Lose Weight, Get Sharper And Live Longer | Tetra Health | Scoop.it
Everyone wants to start the new year off on the right foot. But, as many of us know all too well, the best New Year's intentions to get fit, lose weight, eat more nutritiously, stress less and save more money can easily fall to the wayside. (And often do, considering only about 8 percent of people successfully achieve their resolutions, according to University of Scranton Research, Forbes reported.)

However, it could be that the reason all your other resolutions are failing -- and the reason you're having trouble making sound food choices or keeping weight off to begin with -- is you're ignoring a simple yet powerful component of total health: sleep.

How & Why To Make Your Feet Stronger

How & Why To Make Your Feet Stronger | Tetra Health | Scoop.it

As I noted in my last post about how I work with my clients to build them an unbreakable body, one that has gorgeous movement-quality, and is free from aches & pains, I noted that I look at them through a different fitness lens – one that puts body durability, mobility, and foundational strength in each of 6 key pillars of the body at the forefront.

 

The 6-pillars are simply a way to look at your body and ensure you have critical areas for movement quality locked down. Mobility & strength work can get complex really quickly if you let it – analysis paralysis can take down the best of us. If you use this 6-pillars model, much like if you follow Robb’s basic guidelines for diet & lifestyle, it gets pretty easy pretty quickly. To review, the 6 pillars are: strong feet strong glutes hip stability strong core postural strength scapular stability

Maybe you're convinced you shouldn't lift weights because you prefer not looking like The Hulk. Maybe you figure you just wouldn't like it, since you're not one of those CrossFit types.

 

We hate to be confrontational about it, but frankly, you're wrong. Despite a prevalent allegiance to cardio machines for things like weight loss and overall health, strength training not only builds muscle but can prevent disease, improve mood and -- really! -- help you lose weight.

Got Water? // The Mind Unleashed

Got Water? // The Mind Unleashed | Tetra Health | Scoop.it

"Adverse effects from not drinking enough water include digestive, skin, bladder and kidney problems, fatigue, and even headaches. We need water as much as the air we breathe in! Keeping your body hydrated is not a joke.

 

Did you know that dehydration actually sets in just before you start feeling thirsty? Sipping water throughout the day is the best way to handle it. Always have a bottle or a glass of water handy! If you’re not a morning person, having two glasses of water right after you wake up will boost up your blood pressure to normal levels, and it’s way healthier than having your first coffee on an empty stomach.


Many of us believe that merely drinking fluids like sweetened juices, soda or tea will hydrate you as well as water does. This is not true. It’s actually the opposite! To deal with the excess sugar and salt you are taking in your body wastes immense amounts of precious water just to clean it out from your system. And if you love your coffee, make sure to drink one extra glass of water for every cup you have."...

"Why is Sleep Important?" // HHS

"Why is Sleep Important?" // HHS | Tetra Health | Scoop.it

"Why is sleep important to you?  An estimated 35 percent of U.S. adults report less than seven hours of sleep during a typical 24 hour period.  Sleepiness resulting from insufficient sleep, irregular sleep schedules, or poor quality sleep is a cause of motor vehicle crashes, occupational errors with hazardous outcomes, and difficulty performing daily tasks.  Sleep and wakefulness disorders affect an estimated 15-20 percent of US adults who are more likely to suffer from chronic disorders including depression, substance abuse, hypertension, diabetes, cancer, stroke, and all-cause mortality.  Resilience to stress, emotional regulation, and inter-personal relationships are impaired by sleep deficiency.  Recent findings suggest that investing in sleep health contributes to maintaining brain health, and ultimately protecting cognitive functions necessary for aging-in-place.  Recognizing and addressing sleep health issues presents opportunities for enhancing public health, and improving the well-being of all people.

 

Societal and health consequences of insufficient sleep are explored in “Sleepless in America” produced by National Geographic Channel in collaboration with The National Institutes of Health.  The documentary explains how research is changing our perception of sleep, sleepiness, and its importance to health.  The idea of “sleep” as a period when the brain simply shuts down has been replaced by an increasingly sophisticated understanding of how the rhythm of sleep and wakefulness is necessary for the biological function in every organ.   Not only does this daily “circadian” rhythm play an important role in learning and the filtering of memories in brain, but it also serves to regulate the energy level of most all cells.  Shortages of cellular energy eventually wear down natural defenses through oxidative stress and abnormalities in protein processing increasing the risk of disease.  Another NIH-funded study helped show that during sleep, a byproduct known as amyloid beta is cleared from the brain at a faster rate than when a person is awake.  Amyloid beta has been connected to Alzheimer’s disease."...

Counselling beats anti-depressants in treating social anxiety disorders

Counselling beats anti-depressants in treating social anxiety disorders | Tetra Health | Scoop.it
Before using anti-depressants to treat social anxiety, talking therapies provide increased benefits, according to a new research appearing in The Lancet Psychiatry.

Examination of more than 100 trials performed at Oxford University, University College London and John Hopkins University revealed that people suffering from social anxiety to the extent it affected their day-to-day functioning did much better when had access to counseling than when medication was administered to manage their symptoms. The study involved 13,164 participants, with approximately 75 percent receiving medication or a placebo pill, while 25 percents received counseling.

Mindfulness As Integration | Dr. Dan Siegel

Mindfulness As Integration | Dr. Dan Siegel | Tetra Health | Scoop.it
Let’s start with this distinction: We can have a mindful state of being, and a mindful trait of being. A state is in the moment. A trait is a habitual and repeated way of being over time and over various situations. We intentionally carry out a mindfulness practice—like walking meditation or mindfulness of the breath—to create, on purpose, and repeatedly, an intentional state of taking in what is, without judgment, and with presence to whatever arises. That’s called a mindful awareness practice, or what we call a “MAP” at our UCLA center. MAPs come in many varieties, from yoga and tai’ chi as moving forms of MAPs, to sitting forms such as mindfulness meditation.

For myself, each morning I try to do (or intend to do, it doesn’t always work out that way!) a comprehensive practice that is called the Wheel of Awareness. This WoA practice was created to integrate consciousness as it differentiates and then links a wide array of elements of being aware. Within the metaphoric hub is the sense of knowing; within the rim is that which is known—such as the first five senses, the sixth sense of the sensations from the interior of the body, the seventh sense of our mental life of emotions and thoughts, and even an eighth sense of our relations to people and the planet. Moving a spoke of attention from hub to rim around the various elements of the rim enables hub and rim to be differentiated and then linked. This is how consciousness can be integrated.

Growth mindset should be a philosophy in teaching and learning. Does it replace pedagogy? I don't think so, but I think they work together. Max van Manen's work in the area of thoughtful pedagogy fits well with growth mindset.

 

@ivon_ehd1

Tony Meehan's curator insight, September 20, 2014 4:57 PM

Working with learners of low SES and whose environment more often than not ensures they have a fixed mindset, it is important that we help them to redefine what success is. Too often it is fixed around being rich, having a big car, house, jewellery etc. These learners then become preoccupied with looking for the short-cut to success, to the riches they believe will make them happy. It doesn't work out like that of course. How then to help the alter their thinking? 


Dweck's work is essential in this. But as this article states it cannot be seen as "a task to complete".  It requires a shift in thinking of all in an organisation, a movement for a whole-school way of thinking, involving also parents or carers.  This article by Costa, Garmston and Zimmerman provides a solid basis for promoting growth mindsets in educators. 

Anna-Liisa Hayward's curator insight, September 25, 2014 3:08 AM

This article is not specifically related to ICT but it makes some points that all teachers need to consider: how to deal with change, how to grow as a professional, how to collaborate.
