Moreover, some people report they overeat because they are depressed. For many, moderate depression tends to cause overeating while severe depression tends to cause under-eating. One large study of overweight individuals found depression was the number one reason for overeating, ahead of stress.
Exercise is an excellent way to alleviate mild to moderate depression. By exercising you can expect:
Almost any exercise will do as long as you maintain it for at least 20 to 30 minutes and exercise at 60% or more of your Maximum Heart Rate Capacity (i.e. at least moderate intensity). Exercising outdoors seems to be even more effective.
Exercise seems to give you a better sense of control of yourself which in turn gives you more confidence to deal with other aspects of your life. It also seems to alter your brain neuro-transmitters (dopamine, serotonin and norepinephrine) in some complex and yet not well understood way.
Of course, like Prozac and St John's Wort, exercise doesn't work for everybody. The only way to know is to try it. You'll probably feel better.
Runner's High Is Euphoric. The popular notion of runner's high is a more intense mood altering experience. It is more than that. One runner describes his own experience with runners high:
Runner's high is typically experienced by well conditioned runners after 30 to 60 minutes.. Various reports show that 10% to 78% of runner's experience this high and it may occur either during or after the run. Those runners who have experienced runner's high only experience it about 29% of the time.
At present, there are no well proven explanations for runner's high. The popular notion that runner's high is caused by release of the body's own endorphins seems to be too simple an explanation and other more complex neuro-chemical processes are probably taking place.
If 5 or more of these symptoms persist for more than 2 weeks or are interfering your life, you should see your physician. There is about a 23% chance that someone will suffer some depressive symptoms in his or her lifetime and for those with such symptoms there is a good chance they will reoccur again. Fortunately, for most, these symptoms last for very short periods of time and usually clear up.
What does 'aroha' mean?
The politically incorrect answer would be: the greeting delivered to you by a Japanese person with a heavy accent as you step off the plane in Hawaii.
A less fun answer would be, "Do you mean Aloha?"
name: your fan
What is the meaning of life?
Is there any one good excuse to tell your teacher that you really do not need to take the test she/he is passing out thet will count 25% of your final grade in that class? Is ther any place where you can find Cadbury chocolae year round, except for on the military base? What is it in chocolate that makes it so darn addictive? Why does gum lose its flavor so soon after you put it in your mouth? Is there any gum that has a long lasting flavor? Do you know where I can get a life? Do you know where I can get a brain?
You will probably have to show your teacher a death notice of a close relative to get out of the test. I suggest forging one instead of resorting to constructing a believable 'accident'.
You can buy Cadbury chocolate year round on it's web store.
A chemical named theobromine is what makes chocolate addictive.
Gum lose its flavor so soon after you put it in your mouth because it is designed that way. If it were not, you would only have to buy 1 stick a year.
The only gum that has a long lasting flavor that I know of is made with hot peppers and horse dung. It is not very popular due to it's 'alternative' taste.
You can buy a brain online at brain-mart.com
I have yet to see any sort of life for sale on the internet. I even checked Ebay.
is it true that drinking 40 cups of coffee can kill you?
If you could actually manage to quickly consume 40 cups of very strong coffee you would have about 5,000 milligrams of caffeine in your body and you would probably die.
Unfortunately if you're planning on self terminating via coffee, high doses of caffeine induce vomiting and incontinence, so gagging down those 40 cups would be next to impossible.
I've been seized with a sudden urge to go to Greece. What's a good way to make some quick money? (legal or otherwise... ;) )
I suggest looking through your junk email. There are bound to be a great number of get rich quick offers in there.
If those don't turn out to be that profitable, which would be rather shocking to me, I suggest you start selling drugs. After you sell the drugs for a period of time, you can then go to the police and earn some informant's compensation, clear your name, and then stay in Greece safe from the drug dealers who would then desperately want to whack you.
