Topicdirect your mind in doing exercise

    Having a positive perception of your physical activity, whether walking, running, becoming a fitness club, doing homework or whatever physical activity you do, can help you live healthier and reduce the risk of premature death, says a new study from Stanford University.

    In a long-term study, researchers involved more than 60,000 adults in the US. Participants are asked to respond to surveys that record their level of physical activity.

    The researchers gave one specific question in the first survey conducted in 1990: "Would you say that you are physically more active, less active, or as active as other people your age?" After getting the answer, the researcher then checked the death record for 21 years later .

    As a result, after the participants were significantly controlled for both physical activity and age, weight, and disease status, people who felt that they were less active than others their age were 71% more likely to die sooner.

    "Confidence is very strong in medicine," says Alia Crum, Ph.D., assistant professor of psychology at Stanford. "Our findings are in line with the growing number of studies that show that our mindset, the belief that it is enough to do the physical work we do, can play an important role in our health."

    In other words, you may not have to bother counting the number of sports hours that have been done in a week. You can count on your conscience; are you sure you are physically active enough (when compared to other peers), or need to reduce sitting down and start exercising?
