Mind and Body!
Thousands of years ago, the Ancient Greeks understood the benefits of exercising both their minds and bodies! Unfortunately, today some people are picking one over the other. Some schools have cut back on gym classes and/or recess time to gain more academic seat time. And some students are concentrating their efforts on sports at the expense of their studies.
The mind and body are like a two-lane road. Traveling on only one while ignoring the other might leave you stranded somewhere far away without getting back home. Focusing on only one neglects not only the other but also causes the one you’re focusing on to receive a lot of inefficient attention!
For either side to get the most productive attention, one has to combine the two and utilize the mind and body link together. Can you feel what I’m saying yet? Good! Believe it or not, the mind will help out in any physical endeavor if you give it a chance to work its genius. Likewise, the body will help out in any intellectual effort if allowed to perform.
If athletes learn how to train their brains, they’ll get that mental edge that will give them a leg up on their competition in sports. And if intellectuals discover how to use their body to put themselves in the “zone,” their mind will be sharper and quicker than they’ve ever previously experienced.
Train your brain and feel your body move, and you’re sure to become a smarter, faster, and better you. Just look at Alexander the Great, who loved to physically dominate and destroy his competition as much as he liked to read a good book and study under Aristotle.
