Summary of “Summer camp for adults? Bring on the s’mores! – Experience Magazine”

Everyone is headed to Club Getaway, an all-inclusive, weekend-long sleep-away camp for grown-ups in Kent, Conn. For the next 48 hours, they will sleep on scratchy mattresses in no-frills bunk beds, clamber onto huge inflatables in a lake, play tennis and tug-of-war, all as part of an increasingly sought-after experience: summer camp for adults.
Across the country, adult summer camps take pains to replicate the lost days of youth, right down to the campfires, s’mores, mess hall meals, and classic activities such as tennis, swimming, archery, volleyball, water skiing, and arts and crafts.
There is Camp Bonfire in Philadelphia, Camp Rahh in Seattle, Camp Halcyon in Wisconsin, and Camp No Counselors in multiple locations throughout the U.S. Some are alcohol-free or electronic-device-free; others, like Camp Camp, cater to a specific clientele, in this case the LGBTQ community.
Penny Harvey, a PhD sociology student at Georgia State University who worked as a camp counselor for seven years, says summer camps serve an important purpose for adolescents and adults – allowing them to escape from their day-to-day personas.
“People are able to show up and say, ‘This is who I want to be here.’ You don’t get many chances to be unknown somewhere for a limited time, and have the opportunity to be at a place where you can reinvent yourself,” says Harvey, whose master’s thesis is entitled, “It’s Camp: Summer Camp Culture, the Renegotiation of Social Norms and Regulation of Gender and Sexuality.”
“Adults want to create those bonds again and recreate a camp family,” Harvey says.
As campers finish lunch, color war team leaders are announced, and the adults come running out waving large colored flags.
Marisa Mahler, a clinical psychologist in private practice in New York City, has spent the last two summers as co-director of camper care and camp psychologist at Camp Ramah in New York, a summer retreat for kids.

Summary of “Americans Are Still Not Exercising Enough”

The first guidance for how much exercise adults should be doing for better health came in 2008 with the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans.
In the first survey period, 16% of the people reported sitting for over six hours a day while also not meeting the recommended amount of physical activity, and that proportion increased to nearly 19% in the second survey.
The mean number of hours per day that people spent sitting increased from 5.7 hours to 6.4 hours in that time period.
Studies continue to show that sitting, independent of physical activity, can be a risk factor for a number of chronic diseases.
The U.S. guidelines were revised in 2018, adding a recommendation that in addition to becoming physically active, people should also sit less.
Addressing sedentary behavior directly may be critical for helping people to move more, Bao says, since social trends are providing more and more opportunities to sit instead of staying active.
“We now have more fun that we can enjoy while sitting,” he says.
“We can sit on the couch for five hours and watch interesting TV shows; we sit in the office; we sit in the car. We’re losing opportunities to do more physical activities.”

Summary of “Your Brain Is On the Brink of Chaos”

The brain’s main function is to protect us, like an umbrella, from chaos.
More generally, chaos could grant our brains a great deal of computational power, by exploring many possibilities at great speed.
Motivated by these and other potential advantages, and with an accumulation of evidence in hand, neuroscientists are gradually accepting the potential importance of chaos in the brain.
2, 3.More evidence for chaos in the nervous system can be found at the level of global brain activity.
If chaos plays an important role in the brain, then neural computations do not operate as a static read-out, a lockstep march from the transduction of photons to the experience of light, but a high-dimensional dynamic trajectory as spikes dance across the brain in self-choreographed cadence.
Chaos encourages us to think of certain disorders as dynamical diseases, epileptic seizures being the most dramatic example of the potential failure of chaos.
16 Chaos might also serve as a signature of brain health: For example, researchers reported less chaotic dynamics in the dopamine-producing cells of rodents with brain lesions, as opposed to healthy rodents, which could have implications in diagnosing and treating Parkinson’s and other dopamine-related disorders.
Chaos in the brain undermines glib caricatures of human behavior.

Summary of “The Case for Walking”

Lee is an epidemiologist at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Massachusetts who focuses on how physical activity can promote health and prevent chronic disease.
Most studies on the long-term value of physical activity, if they occur outside a controlled, laboratory setting, rely on self-reporting, which is often inaccurate.
Federal health officials say adults should get at least 2.5 hours weekly of moderate physical activity, such as brisk walking, or 75 minutes of vigorous exercise, plus do some muscle-strengthening exercises.
In the latest federal guidelines from the Department of Health & Human Services, the word “Exercise” appears once, versus 40 instances of “Physical activity.”
“Physical activity need not be strenuous to be beneficial. Moderate amounts of daily physical activity are recommended for people of all ages. This amount can be obtained in longer sessions of moderately intense activities, such as brisk walking for 30 minutes, or in shorter sessions of more intense activities, such as jogging or playing basketball for 15-20 minutes.”
While research suggests inactivity in youth sets a pattern liable to persist for life, other research finds it’s never too late to become active and enjoy at least a good chunk of the benefits: While a lifetime of physical activity is most beneficial at extending life, one study finds, sedentary people who become active in midlife can see their mortality risk drop by 30 to 35%.Walking and other forms of moderate physical activity aren’t just good for the body but can also boost brain power, many studies have shown.
“Using genetic data, we found evidence that higher levels of physical activity may causally reduce risk for depression,” says Massachusetts General Hospital researcher Karmel Choi, lead author of the study.
As the CDC puts it: “Greater amounts of physical activity are even more beneficial, up to a point. Excessive amounts of physical activity can lead to injuries, menstrual abnormalities, and bone weakening.”
