Harder Exercise, Easier Life
Slow and steady may win the race, but if reducing stress is one of your main reasons for working out, you might want to ratchet up the intensity a notch or two. Conventional wisdom has been inclined to push moderate exercise for stress-busting, says Richard Cox, a sports psychologist at the University of Columbia at Missouri. Some experts even think high intensity workouts can make a person anxious, he adds (no surprise there, to anyone who’s ever tried to push herself to the limit). But Cox’s recent study turns this thinking on its head.Cox asked 24 women to do two sessions each on a treadmill—one moderate- and one high-intensity—and to fill out before-and-after questionnaires designed to gauge their stress levels. Both workouts had calming effects, but the high-intensity one produced the steeper decline.Be careful not to overdo it, though.
If you decide to increase the intensity of your workouts, you should start out with short sessions—then add more minutes as you become more fit. And use the “chat” test to determine how hard you should be working. If you can comfortably carry on a conversation while exercising, chances are you’re probably setting too leisurely a pace. But if you can barely complete a sentence, welcome to “the zone.”

UST Executive Conference on the Future of Health Care
Dates: 11/5/2020 – 11/5/2020
University of St.Thomas Saint Paul
2260 Summit Avenue
Discover how you can play an active role in shaping the future by what you do within your organization and network with other health care leaders who are dealing with similar issues. The pace of change in health care has increased exponentially since our inaugural health care conference. And by the time the second annual conference convenes, Congress will have passed its bill for health care reform. We’ll have officially begun a new journey.Fortunately, visionary leaders have been helping to shape this next phase of health care. Investments in innovation and quality have led to some very effective – and often surprising – ways to cut costs, reduce errors, increase service and satisfaction, and improve access and outcomes. Bold initiatives such as these should be shared – especially during this transformative time, when we are all looking for fresh models of excellence. The University of St. Thomas and its partners invite you to participate in an inspiring day of learning, sharing and strategizing about how we can leverage innovation and quality to thrive in the new health care environment.
