Exercise: Crash Course Study Skills #10

We’re finally to the end of our time together here on Crash Course Study Skills, so this week we’re taking a more holistic approach to being the best learner you can. Part of taking care of your brain is taking care of your whole body, of which your brain is a part. We’re wrapping up this course by outlining some good tips and tricks for maintaining a healthy body, and why it’s such an important part of being a great student.

  14. Aleksandur Hristow on June 15, 2021 at 11:01 pm

    What about too much exercise? I used to train instensely 7 days in the week, due to injury I had to stop. After stopping exercise I noticed a dramatic and noticeable improvement in cognition.

  26. Jumana Raggam on June 15, 2021 at 11:15 pm

  40. Daveslow on June 15, 2021 at 11:31 pm

  41. Ramesses II Setepenre on June 15, 2021 at 11:33 pm

    I think they should’ve added nutrition plus Nootropics; Biohacking your own biology in order to enhance cognitive potential. Taking omega-3’s taking a mega threes from fish oil, Drinking l-theanine-rich Matcha tea, caffeine/coffee, natural acetylcholinesterase inhibiters like mint and clove tea/essential oils,. Supplements as vitamins/minerals like C/E, and Magnesium. Meal prep: high protein, medium fat, low carb or the inverse depending on the duration and net energy level needed for a short/long test. You could’ve also added increase oxygen saturation of body during aerobic exercise. Exercise strengthens the heart and diaphragm thereby making your body efficient at circulation, digestion, expression of waste products, as well as changing the microbiome of the gut tract to hoisting more aerobic bacteria. Exercise is like upgrading the engine and the fans in your car. But yes! As a health/kinesiology major, this is grand! I’ve found that aerobic exercise enhances brain function greatly 🙂 The human body was made to do one thing: move! Get some bipedal action!

  42. Saad Ladhani on June 15, 2021 at 11:38 pm

    Then how do you explain Stephen Hawking???

  43. Zachary Ferraro on June 15, 2021 at 11:38 pm

    "Sorry, Professor. I would have turned in my paper, but I ate my own brain like the sea squirt.

    Also, I’m kinda stuck to my bed now."
