Perfect example of a wonder woman... In a span of time she explained everything and charged all..
Sadhanabrata Roy (1 day ago)
I saw her entire speech..... It felt like a sales Representative speech.....though many of the ideas she said maybe correct.... I have a deep gut feeling that there are many things she avoided and many thing she purposely didn't bring it... Only A neurologist who studies the subject will explain and show both of the coin or I have to wait for grow bigger... I am not saying that she is wrong.....but there maybe more to it good and bad....

Exercise cured my anxiety and panic attacks and still does of course. It must be a way of life, but like this lady says, you just need 3-4 times a week, taking the stairs instead of the elevator/lift, small steps to improve your overall health. It improves your body, mind, mood, everything. Everytime I swim I feel amazing, it's hard for anyone to muster up the motivation but once you start you are over the first hurdle. It's free too, the countryside, the seaside, its just a matter of getting up and getting moving. Good Ted Talk! 👌

Man she's a fantastic speaker. Usually the Ted Talk people are good at there subjects but not very good public speakers. But you can tell she was just a natural up there. Almost like a stand up comedian. Very polished.
• Look interview Wendi on my channel in ENG •

Loved this speech!
Ro A (4 days ago)
Thank you for the good talk. I completely agree with you about how exercising can improve concentration and help with anxiety. But the point that I really don't understand is when you mentioned that " exercising creates new cells in the hippocampus ". It's scientifically known that brain cells are not renewable, and they don't undergo the normal cell cycle as other cells in the body. Meaning whenever you loss a cell, that's it you never get any cells as a replacement for what you lost. This is a Fact not a theory. And this what makes neurodegenrative disease serious. Maybe you wanted to say that exercising can help creating more axons and improve the neuro connection between the cells, well that's a diffrent story, but if this what you meant please be more accurate next time. Thank you.

I bet she wouldn't have been able to give a speech with this much energy on her previous research topic only because her physical activity was too low. Her energy in this itself reflects the positive benefits. The same speech wouldn't have had same impact if given by someone else who was very dull. She's filled with so much joy that she can't keep it to herself.. it's overflowing! Thank you so much ma'am #respects

Devesh Nema (5 days ago)
madam is this one minute exercise is equivalent to 3-4 time 30 min exercises and second question- is this one minute exercise is sufficient for instance for students? please reply
Emily Scarpato (5 days ago)
I think she was just using the one minute of exercise as an example of how to exercise. I don't think it was supposed to reflect a 30 minute exercise.
Gigi Friedman (5 days ago)
Devesh Nema Moving your body whenever you can is beneficial to body and your brain. Try HIIT--High Intensity Interval Training. It is all healthy and anti-aging.

Oh...um...and what if there was a SECOND choice? I joke. I’m finding relief from so much that ails me with basic exercise. Amazing how easy it is for many of us. We just need to do what our body, our brain is crying out to do, which is move.

Talk about the effort, Wendy. Now all the American medical idiots are saying "move, please move, any amount is good". I guess most human beings are pathetic, and just won't do what they are supposed to and make all the American Medical Idiots feel bad, and plead "Please move"!

My brain feels so dry. It is not in relaxed state. When I was a child or teenager, my brain used to be so agile and chill. When I say my brain is not relaxed and feels dry, I mean it doesn't feels agile. I broke my heart in love once. It affected me for very long time. It was painful being treated badly and feeling deceived by people who you think love you and care about you and your feelings. I cried my heart out almost everyday for years. Actually it lasted for about 7 years. It affected my brain. At times it was as if I could hear my brain crack causing wounds in my brain. Now its hard for me to organize my life, my time and everything. I don't feel fresh. If you have cried a lot, you might know how brain feels after crying a lot- so dry and void of relaxed and enthusiastic expression on your face• Your face is blank with no expression and seems to be lacking vitality because your brain is lacking vitality. You don't feel lively. It feels like your brain is strained or constrained or bound in a rope so that it cannot move. Its like having ADHD or lack of ritalin in my brain. Please tell me what might have happened to me. How can I became normal again. You might have seen emotionally broken or shattered person in movies or traumatized person in movie or just blank expression on their face. Its just like that. Its like brain not being able to make any expressions or even think properly or make decisions properly. Its also like frontal lobe of your brain responsible for decision making, reasoning, arithmetic, logical thinking and organization being really hard to engage

Jenny Pamplona (11 days ago)
Now I know why I craved that time when I was like on fire. It was the beginning of my first semester that’s why I still have time to do workouts. I felt focused and motivated. I made exercise in the morning my routine and then I studied at night and I got high scores in my quizzes and exams but then my study schedule got hectic and I got lazy to exercise so here I am feelin’ like a potato. But I still crave those feeling

Exercise is free. You don’t need a gym. Go do body weight fingertip pushups. Run for an hour. Or power walk for an hour. Do press flags and Bruce Lee’s Bodyweight Dragon Flags. Do one arm pull-ups. Who needs gym?? Pff

This is something i've known for the last 3 years, and i've exercised on average 6 days per week since then. I've found that if I stop, the positive effects start to go away after about 1 week. When I restart again, the positive effects (longer than just post workout high) come back after about 4 days of exercising.
