You want to grow wiser? Go!

Happen so in life: you overworked. No matter, what was done. But suddenly, at some moment you catch yourself on what is not able to comprehend even the easy text. I can give advice: start walking. Somehow - the house around a table if there is a racetrack - on it, there is no opportunity to walk on the apartment - go outside (it best of all), and begin to measure distance which you passed in mind.

of the Mistake in measurement do not matter so you can not measure, and begin to think over a problem which you cannot solve. Even short walk around the house or office in which you work can increase considerably your ability to solve a problem with which you struggled, or to apprehend the text with which you short could not cope a time ago.

Many of us heard that the physical exercises including circulation improve ability to thinking - or at once, or through some time. These “rumors“ are confirmed by a large number of tests in which experimental animals (and people) showed the best results after exercises, than to them. It concerns both memory, and execution of working duties. In particular, the best decisions are made and stronger organizational abilities come to light. But the physical overstrain is not welcomed. After a marathon, for example, you should not subject the brain to the solution of mathematical tasks.

It can look as an old joke, but exercises are directly connected with creative abilities. Throughout centuries writers and scientists claimed that their best decisions came to their minds during walks or through rather short time after them. But the scientific confirmation establishing connection between increase of level of thinking and exercises was not. And scientists of Stanford University decided to check recently, whether so it, having turned into guinea pigs of the students. Let`s notice that no risk for their life and health existed. Everything was on a voluntary basis. Explained to students a task, and they readily joined in this research.

Students were brought together in big, dim and deprived of all jewelry the hall - an eye could not be put where there were a table and a racetrack. Students sat down at a table and finished the test for detection of their creative abilities. In psychology such tests can include a task to quickly find as much as possible alternative applications of the simple button. Then participants got up on a racetrack facing an empty wall, chose the speed of its movement and during walking repeated this test. On everything eight minutes were given.

Almost at all students cogitative activity considerably increased during circulation. At the majority a variety increased in use of the button for sixty percent. And every time it was inventive and expedient. These experiences were described in article of professor of university doctor Opezzo and The Journal of Experimental Psychology are published in the monthly of experimental psychology “: Learning, Memory and Cognition“.

However whether all these researches make practical sense? The person resembled, grew wise, and then sat down at a table, and everything returned into place. It is almost impossible to carry out brainstorming during walking on a racetrack. Therefore the test was continued to find out how many the effect of “poumneniye“ after walking lasts. Also it became clear that the difference between sitting and going remains very considerable how the second group took seat at tables too. That is if earlier both groups showed identical abilities to various thinking, then after walk the second group appeared in more advantageous position.

The last test was carried out in the fresh air. And here - that results disproved belief that walk within four walls of boring office gives smaller effect for improvement of work of a brain, than walk on park avenues. Differences between the students idling outdoors, and those who went on a racetrack, looking at an empty wall, was practically not any.

A conclusion is simple: only walking in any kind matters. knows Long ago that physical exercises can cause long physiological changes in work of a brain. But a riddle remains as short walk changes the mentality connected with process of thinking.

There is an assumption that as the reason serves simple improvement of mood during walking, and it is primary push which as if urges on a brain and “adjusts“ it for more hard cogitative work. It only one of assumptions.

There is still an assumption: walking allows a brain to punch super - rational mental filters which serve as an absolute obstacle in a way to a variety of thinking in usual conditions.

But it is only two of a set of assumptions. If someone wishes to find new, I suggest to walk. Anyway, you will not come off the loser. Walk is always useful including for health. Now in medical circles the increasing strength is gained by idea that simple walking is more useful than solving of crossword puzzles to rescue from senile dementia.
