Meanwhile PE class is optional…

At least it is in some K-12 schools, according to what I have been told. And it has been that way for a while: we now have college kids taking our Tai chi class who have no ever had any PE classes before.

There is a price to pay: http://neurosciencenews.com/fitness-kids-gray-matter-7997/

High Intensity Exercise Boosts Memory

Interestingly, I didn’t see the what the exercise was in the Abstract; and they also mentioned, indirectly, the importance of nutrition – or the importance of factors dependent on nutrition.

Just more evidence in support of what is already established: more exercise, more better!

The Yin & Yang of Brain Health

Yesterday I shared a Post on recent research showing what increases brain size (or prevents it’s age-related deterioration). That is the Yang.

Here is research about the invaluable importance of sleep!

By slowing down deterioration…even in humans!

A Huge Finding

Here is the article about research on Lymphatic vessels in the brain.

We talk a lot about lymph drainage in Tai Chi – in particular there are certain exercises that we do in which we discuss the effect on the dura mater (the covering of the brain where lymph vessels are now known to exit). There are a lot of implications!

What We Know Vs What We Don’t Know

This review of research is a great example of learning something about nature (our brains in this case), that is just enough to realize that everything we know just barely scratches the surface.

Just like I have been saying…

Forgetting is just as important as remembering: science says so!

“… a large and growing body of research…” (on exercise and the brain)

“This extensive review resulted in three main observations. First, the most consistent behavioral effects of acute exercise are improved executive function, enhanced mood, and decreased stress levels. Second, neurophysiological and neurochemical changes that have been reported after acute exercise show that widespread brain areas and brain systems are activated. Third, one of the biggest open questions in this area is the relationship between the central neurochemical changes following acute exercise, that have mainly been described in rodents, and the behavioral changes seen after acute exercise reported in humans. Bridging this gap will be an important area of future study.”

Priority #1 Video (Breathing!)

It is amazing where and from whom you learn the most important stuff: in this case it was while having my teeth cleaned.

What I like about this video is that, first, tai chi is never mentioned one time. And second, all of this wisdom and life-changing advice flows naturally in the learning and practice of… tai chi!

The last thing about this video that makes it priceless is that you are not hearing any of it from me. If you have heard it all from me in the past, perhaps this video will impress upon you the value of the information. If not, please take every word seriously – she makes one technical, little tiny, mistake, but the message is huge and everyone needs to hear it. You especially need to hear it if you plan to deliver via C-section, plan not to breast feed, or plan to feed your baby cow products… or if any of the above happened to you. (I know, you are wondering how and if all of those things are really related. They are.) Enjoy this amazingly important presentation.
