I’ve been thinking a lot about keeping my mind fresh and active and I’ve found that exercise is one of those things that keep me “bubbly.” It looks like Kathy Sierra has noticed the same:
Her weblog concentrates on teaching me how to write a weblog that people will love. What it has to do with exercise, I don’t know, but this article was very helpful to me.
Want to be a little smarter? Have a better memory? Stay mentally sharp? Improve higher brain function? Run. Those who exercise have a mental advantage over those who don’t.
Every day when I take my dog for a walk or play with the horses, I watch them tear around and think, “Why do I have to force myself to do what they do because they love it?”
Sometimes we think too hard about exercise. Next time you go outside for a run, try running like a crazy maniac. It’s what my dog does everytime I remove his leash at the dog park. There is something about just letting loose and running full speed that is so fun and invigorating. Somehow, it gets lost when we grow up.
