Working out to be smarter


When I saw the headline on this article posted on today

Working Out Doesn’t Just Make You Stronger, It Makes You Smarter

I clicked immediately, hoping to find validation of what I’ve known to be true for a long time – the more I go to the gym, the more efficient I am and the better my brain works. 

As I started to read the article, I was discouraged because it seemed to be all about kids needing more exercise to fight obesity. I had to get pretty far down before I actually got to the part about adults.

I finally found some of the validation I was looking for, but I really don’t need Fast Company to tell me how much healthier I am now that my main “job” every day is to go to the gym! I’ve lost 25 pounds, I don’t fall down anymore, I can lift and stretch to reach things better than I remember ever being able to do those things in the past, and I feel terrific!
