Fatigue Is A Mind Thing

Fatigue Is A Mind Thing

A new picture is emerging of the way that the brain manages the body's resources and how this can be swayed by our motivation, and by our broader beliefs about our capabilities and the task ahead.

These new insights offer enticing strategies that we can all use to boost our performance and improve our experience of exercise.

Placebos: We Think We Are Getting Better, And We Do

Placebos: We Think We Are Getting Better, And We Do

Caffeine, for instance, has long been considered a muscular stimulant that can enhance performance in many sports - yet that is largely a product of our expectations about what it can do.

According to multiple studies, people can benefit from so-called open-label placebos, even though they know they are taking an inert substance.

The Expectation Effect

The Expectation Effect

There is no substitute for auto-suggestion, or self-belief.

Understanding the power of mind-over-muscle might lead us to reconsider some of our core underlying beliefs about our fitness. For manifold reasons, we might assume that we simply aren’t cut out for exercise.

We may have had poor experiences in gym classes at school, for example, and our feelings of inadequacy could then be exacerbated as we compare ourselves with the stronger and faster gym bunnies around us.

The Negative Thought Spiral

The Negative Thought Spiral

Scientific research shows that negative beliefs about our capacity for exercise can reduce our endurance and increase our discomfort. This will naturally make it much harder to summon the will to work out in the future.

We can also look out for ‘catastrophic thinking’ while we go about the exercise, and try to interpret feelings of exertion more objectively. If you have a dim view of your fitness, you might currently interpret the natural aches and pains and feelings of fatigue as a sign of your own ineptitude.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
