Exercise to Rejuvenate your Body

This is not the usual weekly creativity exercise, rather the right exercise for you need to stay healthy forever. What do you think is the right way to exercise? Is is moderate cardio, weight lifting or interval training?

There seem to only be one sort of workout that can undo what the years did to your body. It’s surprisingly the interval training. It seems as if the decline in the cellular health of muscles associated with aging can be “corrected” with intense exercise. So go for a brief interval training three times a week going hard for four minutes, resting for three and then repeating that sequence three more times.

The toll that aging takes on a body extends all the way down to the cellular level. But the damage accrued by cells in older muscles is especially severe, because they do not regenerate easily and they become weaker as their mitochondria, which produce energy, diminish in vigor and number.

Future Skills

What should we teach our kids? There’s not much you can teach them in regard of their future job since:

“65 percent of children entering grade school this year will end up working in careers that haven’t even been invented yet.”

Which means two thirds of our kids will have a job title that doesn’t exist now. The only things that cannot be done by robots are these four Cs:

  • Critical Thinking
  • Creativity
  • Communication
  • Collaboration

These are the aspects you need to focus on and luckily these aspects are all part of what I teach in my “How to Solve Problems That Cannot Be Googled” workshops. These are the future skills!

Quote of The Week

Evidence of good parenting: the child has no desire to be famous.
F.Scott Fitzgerald

Do you teach your kids to believe that happiness can be reached by focusing on external factors or do you teach them happiness comes from inside? Does you child want to be validated by others? Great quote Mr Fitzgerald!

Have a good week all
