Tips to maintain physical and mental health:
WHAT 10 MINUTES OF EXERCISE A DAY CAN MEAN FOR YOUR MENTAL HEALTH
Regular exercise is good for us. We all know that. Most of the time, we think of the advantages for our physique: better stamina, more mobility and still being able to fit into clothes. It is much more exciting to look at the benefits for our mental abilities. This has been done by a group of researchers led by Professor Felipe Schuch (Brazilian Universidade Federal de Santa Maria) in long-term studies. They have accompanied more than 200,000 mentally healthy people over a period of 7 1/2 years. Here is the link to the summary of the studies (2018).
It is an essential finding that people who are particularly active, i.e. 30 minutes 5 times a week (150 minutes per week) have a 30% lower risk of developing depression in the future. But even those who only exercised moderately had a 15% reduced risk of mental illness. That means we can all use exercise as medicine.
Strategies for challenging times
Part 1: Reduce short-term stress.
We have been living in these very special times for a year and feel the tension both physically and mentally. We feel stressed.
According to Andrew Huberman, who teaches and researches as a neuroscientist at Stanford (https://www.hubermanlab.com), it is a system that mobilizes certain mechanisms in the head and body. We all have the opportunity to activate this system, also to control it in part, and thus to mitigate the negative effects.

Testimonials of clients
„OSM Maritime introduced a ‘work from home’ policy for all offices globally immediately after the World Health Organization (WHO) declared COVID-19 a pandemic. At OSM, our motto is ‘it’s all about people’ which we have taken even more serious in these unprecedented circumstances. We felt that protecting the health of our people just by asking them to stay at home would not be sufficient, and that we could do more. Together with Anja Termoellen, we very quickly developed and launched a global program to support our teams at home with simple yet effective routines in managing this new and challenging situation. Thanks to an excellent collaboration with Anja, our people developed a good level of resilience which did not only help us to succeed in keeping up our commitment to deliver excellent services to our customers, but moreover included the development of new services.“
Björn Sprotte, CEO, OSM Maritime Group
„Technology makes it possible – we switched Anja Termöllen online to take a break during our strategy retreat. Thanks for the impulses and exercises. We were able to continue working with new energy!“
Christoph Nath, Managing Director, Stadtwerke GmbH Bad Kreuznach
“Anja offered us valuable support during the lockdowns in 2020.
She conducted for us weekly sessions on the topics: coping with uncertainty, building mindful routines and working remotely.
In addition she provided tips and material that can be used on a daily basis and are applicable for everyone“
Andreas Tziarras, Head of HR OSM Maritime Group
“We were in the midst of an intense management training, when Anja Termöllen made us recharge our batteries with some simple and easy-to-apply physical exercises. With her even temper and her positive mindset Anja has the ability to make everyone concentrate on the drill and relax at the same time. After the 15-minute practice we were able to refocus again on our training and we all felt great and fit.”
Moritz Böcking, Managing Director Klasmann-Deilmann GMbH
