ZENandTECH 3: Death dealing

We were scheduled to talk about exercise on ZENandTECH this week, but after suffering a death in the family, Georgia discusses the stresses and strains of major loss, and offers some tools and tips for dealing with them, including... video games. Then it's back on topic and we somehow end up on whether or not sex counts as exercise. (Listen to find out!)

Read on for more!


  • Dealing with death
  • The importance of exercise


  • Breathing
  • Work that occupies your mind but doesn't stress you, like casual video games, cleaning, knitting, etc.


  • Get your heart rate up for 20 min., 4 times a week (to burn stress)
  • Start slow if you're new, better to aim small and accomplish
