The audio version of this lesson is lower

"Prolonged psychological stress is the enemy of our mental health, and physical movement is our best weapon to respond" is what Leon Taylor teaches us in this TED talk about mental health. He explains, through his own experience, how we can, by taking up a physical activity, improve our mental health and fight depression and anxiety.

Here you can find the most useful phrases you should know after this lesson.

No matter what - regardless of (No matter what they say I will use this opportunity and go live in another country )

Cope with something - to face and deal with responsibilities, problems, or difficulties, especially successfully or in a calm manner

Stuck in one's head - being heard over and over again in one's mind ( A song can be stuck in your head all day long sometimes.)

Play a key role - to be involved in something, especially in a way that is important. You can play a key role in a show or an event or in business in your company.)

So much so - to indicate that your previous statement is true to a very great extent, and therefore it has the result mentioned. (I am so tired, so, I will go to bed right away.)

Proceed with something - to continue doing something that has already been started. ( We can proceed with our project even if she doesn't come back to the team.)

Way before - way here is a colloquial adverb meaning approximately "at a great distance, long" (Way before, when I was young, I loved to do sports.)

Feel at ease - If you are at ease, you are feeling confident and relaxed, and are able to talk to people without feeling nervous or anxious. Psychologists should make us feel at ease, for example.

No longer valid - not available anymore. Your ticket can no longer be valid.

Hit rock bottom - the most unhappy that someone has ever been in their life. We can hit rock bottom if we lose someone we love or lose our job.
How to remember these words?
Did you notice that our advice changes every lesson? Yes you are right.

  1. Do not forget about today's test
  2. Use, use,use these words a lot. Use them right now, the ones from this lesson. Write a short story.
One grammar rule - Conditionals

(He said "None of that would have been possible if my mum and dad hadn't chosen physical movement). Sometimes we call them 'if clauses'. They describe the result of something that might happen (in the present or future) or might have happened but didn't (in the past) . This is the third conditional. It's built using (Past perfect + would have + past participle). In English we have zero conditional, first, second and third conditional.

And, we are finishing this lesson with quotes.
"Mental health is not a destination, but a process. It's about how you drive, not where you're going."

"Anyone who has grown mentally, physically, or spiritually knows that growth is not found in comfort."

"Health does not always come from medicine. Most of the time. It comes from peace of mind, peace in the heart, peace in the soul. It comes from laughter and love."

You did it, perfect.

This was your 4th lesson and we talked about mental health.
