Interesting talk

The Vagus nerve is part of our parasympathetic nervous system, delivering information from all our major organs to the brain stem, and stimulating it can help us switch off our fight or flight response and calm us down. But listener Mags wants to know what science says about its impact on our general wellbeing? Marnie Chesterton learns some deep breathing techniques and discovers how the length of our exhale is closely linked to our heart rate, all of which is important for developing something called vagal tone. Cold water immersion also said to stimulate the Vagus, so Marnie braves a freezing shower, only to discover she needs to get her face wet but keep the rest of her body dry, to avoid what scientists called autonomic conflict, which is when your stress response and calming response are both switched on by the same event. Activating both arms of the nervous system in this way can lead to serious heart problems in some people. New research into the gut-brain axis has shown that the Vagus nerve may be responsible for transporting the so-called happy hormone serotonin, which could have important implications for the treatment of depression. And innovations in electrical stimulation of this nerve means implanted devices may soon be used to treat inflammatory conditions like arthritis.

Goodgym people bend over backwards to relax!

Tue 9 Mar
Report written by Paul Salman

A few goodgym people joined online yoga. Thanks for coming! Yoga talk

Backbends are invigorating and strengthening. They stretch the quads and hip flexors and help open up the shoulders and chest, an area where lots of us hold tension. ... By increasing mobility and awareness of the spine, backbends improve posture and can help to alleviate some kinds of back and neck pain. By releasing tension we get a relief from anxiety and stress that may build up over the day.

Please let me know if you have any questions or feedback

Do you need a bit more flexitime?

Tue 23 Feb
Report written by Paul Salman

A few GoodGym members came together for a yoga practice.

yoga talk...

If you’re ready to add yoga to your workout routine or deepen your yoga practice in general, you may wonder how much time you need to spend on your mat to experience the physical and mental benefits.

Well, it depends. Studies show that a regular yoga practice can improve muscle strength, promote good posture, increase balance, and help flexibility.

It can also boost your immune system and reduce your risk of symptoms related to chronic health conditions. Check out the newest yoga workouts in the Aaptiv app here.

But whether you practice once in a blue moon or every single day, here’s what a slew of experts suggest for both beginners and established yogis.

Yoganna improve your mind as well as your body.

Tue 9 Feb
Report written by Paul Salman

A few goodgym members came together to do online yoga.

Studies have shown that activities that require you to think while moving, like Tai Chi, yoga, aerobics, Zumba, and choreographed dancing, are going to be the most beneficial for your brain. Another way is when you run or cycle look for new routes over varied terrain.

Thanks for coming, being active and doing good.

Parkland Walk (run) art trail hunt.

Sun 28 Feb 18:45 pm
Holmesdale road , Highgate, London, N6 5TH
Fitness and free art.

A solo or paired activity run/walk even cycle to see artwork hidden along the trail. Your challenge is how many can you identify and how long does it take. (Answers on a postcard or the WhatsApp group) take photo of your favourite one. You have all of February to action. See link for map starting points.

Link via Archway Road and Highgate Wood

https://goo.gl/maps/xdFepWFrh4J1MnH17

Throughout 2020 Ben Wilson, famous for his miniature artworks created on discarded chewing gum, has been creating pictures along the Parkland Walk. Each tiny piece of art is a reflection of the character and history of the Parkland Walk with brightly coloured animals and plant life and references to its past as a railway line. The project has been funded through crowd funding and attracted just short of a hundred donations.

If you've ever noticed any of the brown numbered marker posts along the side of the path then hunt around the immediate area and see if you can find one of Ben's paintings. Each post has a picture nearby. You won't need to stray off the path to find them. Ben has made some easier to find than others. There are 17 marker posts in all but Ben has created many other pictures along the way. Keep your eyes peeled and you'll soon become familiar with the type of locations where you can expect to find others. We're not giving away any clues as to where these others are! If you can access the Google map on our website via a mobile device, the locations of the marker posts are also shown with a leaf logo.
