Fitness, Health and Wellness Expert Dr. Veronica Anderson Publishes a New Blog Exposing the Fact That People May Have an Inner Exercise Tracker

Dr. Veronica Anderson, Founder and Host of web radio talk show, Wellness for the Real World, a weekly resource for wellness of mind, body and spirit, explains that studies show that those who dedicate themselves to scheduled exercise make choices that keep them less active outside the gym.

NEW YORK, NY – November 9, 2011Dr. Veronica Anderson, social media medicine expert and Founder and Host of health and wellness web radio talk show, Wellness for the Real World, recently published a blog on her website that encourages readers to push past their own limits if they really want optimal health. In her blog titled “How Much Should You Trust Your Inner Exercise Barometer?,” Dr. Veronica helps us to evaluate whether our inner exercise gauge is set high or low!

Dr. Anderson writes, “We all feel proud of ourselves after a good hard workout session. But are your extra efforts to promote activity in your daily life really making a difference? Consider this thought – what if by working out hard at the gym, you actually give yourself more breaks throughout the rest of the day? For example, instead of climbing the stairs, you take the elevator. Or, maybe you normally would have parked in the back of the parking lot, but now you find the closest spot so you don’t have to walk farther. Is that really you making those conscious decisions, or is your body responding to an inward “set point” for daily movement, a so-called “activitystat”?”

“This concept has been circulating as a question within the medical and scientific industries for some time, and recently, the New York Times published an article discussing the topic. One professor of endocrinology explored this possibility, and subsequently performed a study on children from three different schools that advocated varying hours of physical education requirements. The students were equipped with an accelerometer, a device that measures the physical activity of the wearer, and the results were astonishing,” explains Dr. Anderson.

Wellness for the Real World features information on developing a healthy and fit mind, body and spirit in today’s dynamic society. Dr. Anderson adds her easily understandable, fun-infused voice to the broad-audience discussion on today’s most popular medicines, alternative treatments, health policies and opinions of wellness – so that her listeners can benefit from truly vigorous life in the real world today.
