why are we working out?

Posted by Chad on September 5, 2013 at 12:50 AM

I haven't posted anything in a while.  People who believe and think the way I do are almost always posting eloquent ideas, theories, and I will continue to pass those along whenever I think they are pertinent to someone's situation.

Today I woud like to bring up a question...why do we exercise?  I think we have seen enough reason to exercise as it pertains to health benefits.  The other main reason we hear is of course, to look better naked...or on the beach, right?

Well, there is another reason that isn't talked about enough.  This reason, in my opinion, is the most important...that is of nervous system regulation.  Like we read all the time, "exercise relieves stress" but how?  If a person is stuck in the fight or flight response (their autonomic nervous system is "on" all the time) does it really matter how much they exercise?

Have we all heard someone say that they go in for a massage, and it feels good for a while, but then fairly quickly, the tightness or stress "comes back?"  How do we keep stress from coming back?

Our brains do not distinguish between stressors, a job deadine or a lion chasing you.  What then is the difference between these two?  A physical response!  Very rarely in today's vocational world, do we have to run or fight or climb or swim or throw something heavy to physically respond to a stressor.  THIS is why it is MOST important to exercise...for regulation of the nervous system.  The trick is, to know this and think about it!

When you finish with a workout, or playtime, take a few minutes to reflect on the movements you did.  Take a few minutes of calm, either lying down or leaning back or being seated, to drink in what you just accomplished and let your nervous system pendulum swing from the ANS to PNS (turn away from fight or flight being stuck in the on position.)  I personally don't stretch to be flexible, I like positions that allow me to relax, to not feel taxed in any DOWN-REGULATE my nervous system.

(my son down regulating after climbing!)

This is how we regulate our hormones for weight management, for sleep, for health.  We can't be stuck in any one rhythm...we need them all to regulate our well being.   Think about down-regulation after your next few workouts, and see if you don't feel better for hours afterward!

Have fun moving!

Successful organizations can achieve a huge audience by means of their marketing methods. These days, it's straightforward to do exactly that online. With very good marketing with video information, you can encourage oneself around the globe quickly. The guidelines in this post may help.

When you produce a video clip for advertising purposes keep it less than 2 minutes. You want your audience to view the entire meaning, and should it be too much time you will most likely shed people as they click on away. You can proceed a believed or concept in a follow-up online video as needed.

Don't only depend on videos in your marketing campaign. They may be great marketing and advertising instruments, even so, they need to not swap your other advertising strategies. Videos must not substitute information creation like content creation or writing a blog. Video clips should just be used to improve the articles inside your marketing campaign and to build up your website link stock portfolio.

If you're offering a product or service, develop a online video which tells your prospects how to use the item. Start with opening the box, manage by way of how to input it jointly, after which show them how they may make use of it. This will make them appreciate how much you regard your clients.

Within your video marketing, allow the viewer know why it is basically that you offer the goods and services that you just do. They could effortlessly see the things you supply, but make sure they know the primary reason for it. Available, authentic and candid connection engenders have confidence in, which engages new market and preserves previous customers.

Video tutorials must be personalized to hook the viewer's focus. Be fun, pleasant, relax and assured plus your watchers won't alter the route, so to speak. The more available and genuine you are, the higher received you will be. Adhere to subjects you're really enthusiastic about as which will emerge within your attitude.

Ensure your video lessons are publicized in a two-fold fashion. Allow your existing core market recognize that new content is up, by way of your blog site and e mail or e-zine list. Even so, also ensure that you advertise it to new readers via social websites posts and search engine optimization tactics affordable.

Whenever anybody openly asks a question in the remarks on your video lessons, think about provided you can answer them in yet another video. If you think regarding it, it is possible to develop a funny respond to which gives them with the data they seek in addition to a entertaining video if other folks want to watch, every one of the far better!

Recall what energy video marketing has above other social websites types. Youtube, Facebook or myspace and blogs are written text methods. Only through video information your feelings, as well as can come by way of. Body vocabulary is said to be the majority of conversation, and lacking a in person meeting, a video is your up coming-best bet.

Ensure that your video tutorials have summaries or perhaps transcripts of the information. The major search engines are not able to however pay attention to or see video lessons to directory them accurately. So, a comprehensive explanation inside the text or program code will be the best option at getting your movie ranked well.

If you are just starting video marketing, then have a online video up as soon as you can. Studying strategies and understanding concept and preparing is all very good. Nevertheless, there is not any more efficient trainer than experimentation. Buy your very first online video up and you will become familiar with a lot.

You ought to have a greater understanding of how to get noticed swiftly with video clips. You will learn the capability to develop a world-large market. Marketing through video clips will allow you to hop on track to satisfy your targets.
