Why your brain loves it when you exercise, plus 3 easy ways to work out at home

Motivation is not in high supply these days — but ensuring that we move a little bit every day is more important for us than ever, according to Wendy Suzuki Ph.D., a neuroscientist at New York University.

Dr. Suzuki studies the neurological impacts of exercise, and she says that just a walk around the block or a 10-minute online workout will not only improve your day but also benefit your brain in a lasting way.

“Exercising to increase your fitness literally builds brand new brain cells. It changes your brain’s anatomy, physiology, and function,” she explains. “Every time you work out, you are giving your brain a neurochemical bubble bath, and these regular bubble baths can also help protect your brain in the long term from conditions like Alzheimer’s and dementia.”

This sounds great. But it’s hard to turn those long-term benefits into motivation to get up and do something every day.

Who Taught Women That They Should Only Eat 1,200 Calories A Day?

Leave a comment

.

In September, Jamie Nadeau, a 32-year-old nutritionist based in Massachusetts, posted a TikTok that went semi-viral. “Is 1,200 calories right for you?” she asked in a voiceover while pointing at a MyFitnessPal screenshot and smiling. “Here’s how you know,” she continued. Then she revealed that 1,200 calories is actually only enough daily nutrition if you’re an “8oish lb dog” or a toddler.

The comments to her video are pretty clearly split; half of them are from people agreeing, while the other half are women trying to rationalize why 1,200 calories is exactly right for them. “It’s the only way I lose any weight,” wrote one woman. Another wrote that 1,200 seemed like a lot and that she would “stick to 800.” “The comments were really upsetting,” Nadeau told me over the phone in late December. “It showed how disordered so many women eat and think about food.”

Here’s an unscientific but still upsetting poll: It seems that nearly every woman I know has done the 1,200-calorie diet at some point in their lives, including myself. The diet is pretty simple: Count your calories diligently, and make sure you don’t go over 1,200 for the day. (If you’re active, maybe you can consider 1,500.) Most regimented diet programs, like Weight Watchers, are similarly based on a 1,200 caloric intake, just hidden behind a “point” system so it doesn’t feel like calorie counting. Earlier this week, I asked my Instagram followers if they’d ever tried eating just 1,200 calories a day, and every reply was from a woman who had attempted, and often failed, at eating so little.

After Working at Google, I’ll Never Let Myself Love a Job Again

Leave a comment

I used to be a Google engineer. That often feels like the defining fact about my life. When I joined the company after college in 2015, it was at the start of a multi-year reign atop Forbes’s list of best workplaces.

I bought into the Google dream completely. In high school, I spent time homeless and in foster care, and was often ostracized for being nerdy. I longed for the prestige of a blue-chip job, the security it would bring, and a collegial environment where I would work alongside people as driven as I was.

What I found was a surrogate family. During the week, I ate all my meals at the office. I went to the Google doctor and the Google gym. My colleagues and I piled into Airbnbs on business trips, played volleyball in Maui after a big product launch, and even spent weekends together, once paying $170 and driving hours to run an obstacle course in the freezing rain.

What to do if you got the Johnson & Johnson vaccine

Leave a comment

People who got the Johnson & Johnson vaccine in the last few weeks shouldn’t be nervous, federal officials said, despite the nationwide pause on administering the shots after six reports of a rare type of blood clot. But they should keep an eye out for possible warning signs.

The six cases were in women ages 18 to 48 who developed symptoms six to 13 days after receiving the shots. One died, and another patient is in critical condition, Food and Drug Administration and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention officials said Tuesday.

All the women developed a type of clot called a cerebral venous sinus thrombosis, or CVST — a blood clot in the vessels that drain blood from the brain — combined with low levels of blood platelets, or thrombocytopenia, according to the FDA and the CDC.

Should I be worried?

For individuals who got the Johnson & Johnson vaccine more than a month ago and are not experiencing any symptoms, there is little reason to feel anxious, Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said during a separate White House briefing later Tuesday. That’s because any serious reaction would have been evident by now.

What Do Near-Death Experiences Mean, and Why Do They Fascinate Us?

Leave a comment

When Gregg Nome was 24 years old, he slipped into the churn beneath a waterfall and began to drown, his body pummelled against the sandy riverbed. What he saw there surprised him. Suddenly, his vision filled with crystal-clear scenes from his childhood, events he had mostly forgotten, and then moments from early adulthood. The memories, if that’s what they were, were vivid and crisp. Was he reliving them? Not quite. They came at high speed, almost all at once, in a wave. And yet he could process each one individually. In fact, he was able to perceive everything around him: the rush of the water, the sandy bed, all of it brilliantly distinct. He could “hear and see as never before,” he recalled later. And, despite being trapped underwater, he felt calm and at ease. He remembered thinking that prior to this moment his senses must have been dulled somehow, because only now could he fully understand the world, perhaps even the true meaning of the universe. Eventually, the imagery faded. Next, “There was only darkness,” he said, “and a feeling of a short pause, like something, was about to happen.”
