Think About Exercise: The Workout Plan To Losing Weight And Keeping It Off Is All In Your Head

At one point or another, we or someone we know is on a diet. We eat healthy and exercise, (with a few cheat days in between) to lose weight, but when we don’t see results, we’re hard on ourselves, and stop working out. Now, researchers at the University of Michigan suggest the key to weight loss is all in our head: we need to change the way we think about exercise.

Our expectations and beliefs about exercise can influence how successfully we’re able to include physical activity into our daily routine.

La Caravana

La caravana

Un aspirante a discípulo le dijo a Dhun Nun el egipcio:
“Lo que más deseo en este mundo es ser admitido en el Camino de la Verdad”.
Dhun Nun le dijo:
“Puedes acompañar nuestra caravana únicamente si primero logras aceptar dos cosas: una es que tendrás que hacer cosas que no quieres hacer. La otra es que no se te permitirá hacer cosas que deseas hacer. Es el ‘querer’ lo que se interpone entre el hombre y el Camino de la Verdad”.

Crianças que têm aula de música ampliam suas funções cognitivas para sempre

“A música é capaz de despertar memórias, emoções e sentimentos profundos. Ela penetra tão profundamente em nosso sistema nervoso que é, comumente, a última coisa que perdemos. Quando músicos de jazz tocam de improviso (uma característica frequente desse tipo de música), seus cérebros “desligam” áreas ligadas à autocensura e à inibição e ativam aquelas que deixam fluir a autoexpressão. Ou seja, ao desligarem a inibição, eles davam espaço à criatividade: através da revelação posso conhecer a mim mesmo e ao outro. ”

How Diet Influences Anxiety

Welcome to the Brain Food blog for Medscape Psychiatry. I am Dr Drew Ramsey, assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at Columbia University in New York City.

Last month, we reviewed the literature on how diet and nutrition can be used to augment our current treatments for depression. Today, I want to discuss how nutritional psychiatry—the use of nutrition and food—influences anxiety disorders.

Anxiety disorders are the most commonly diagnosed mental health disorder. Of note, we do not have the same robust set of data that we have with depression. There are no randomized controlled trials that look at the effects of foods, nutrition, or specific nutritional supplements on anxiety disorders in general or specific anxiety disorders.

In this video blog, I will go over the growing and quite interesting data that do exist. Then I will talk about how we use food to help patients with anxiety disorders in our clinic in New York City.
