Seminar Title Run and sleep for your brain! How exercise, mindset, and sleep improve your mental health and resilience?

Abstract
We all have heard that exercise and sleep are good for our body, but what about the mind? Some of us might have noticed that going for a run, doing yoga, or sleeping more than 7 hours helps us with our mental health. But is it just us, or is it a proven fact? And how does this happen? And more importantly, are there any peer-reviewed studies showing what is the best exercise, meditation, or sleep regime to ensure good mental health and mental resilience?
In this talk I will briefly summarise peer-review data on how exercise, mindfulness, and sleep affect our brain and mental health, leading to increase mental resilience. This talk is based on the evidence-based “embedding mental wellbeing” intervention I have designed for neuroscience students shown to improve their mental resilience and even provide them with tools to cope with mental stress linked to the Covid Pandemic.
