This article, by Jane Porter, made me immediately want to get up and exercise. I’m thinking of printing this article and taping it to my snooze button. Titled, “How Exercise Changes Your Brain to Be Better at Basically Everything” the author cites studies and writes some very motivating paragraphs.
Here is one of my favorites, quoting the New York Times‘s Gretchen Reynolds.
It’s not about using exercise as a way to lose weight – it’s about becoming more fit and maintaining a healthy heart and mind. “If someone starts an exercise program and improves his fitness, even if he doesn’t lose an ounce, he will generally have a longer life and a much healthier life,” says Reynolds.
