Of 107 patients, 40 received standard medical care; 34 additionally engaged in vigorous exercise for 35 minutes, 3 times a week for 16 weeks; and 33 additionally were given weekly group sessions where they learned relaxation and stress reduction techniques (education, progressive muscle relaxation, biofeedback, thought-stopping, anger management).

There are two other areas that I believe directly impact on a person's self-esteem. These are the related concepts of self perception of competence and stress. The...
For years I have studied experts in a wide range of endeavors, included sports, science, and the arts, as well as professional trainers. There are three attributes that each of them share. They have developed an exceptional ability to install new information, to increase the depth of their knowledge, and have the ability to trigger superior performance with ease. These three steps apply both to the trainer’s skills as well as to how to accelerate the student’s progress.
My studies have involved two groups of people. The first are those that either started early in life or have...
