Physical exercise as simple as walking is obviously good for the body but it also is good for the overall existence and health of the entire person. Studies show a correlation between creativity and walking. More walking and physical movement is key for the brain to be more creative as well as overall physical health. One study reviewed this.
The article, “Can Exercise Make You More Creative?” by Gretchen Reynolds looked more closely at this study and correlation between walking and creativity. She states,
“If you often exercise, there’s a good chance you also tend to be more creative, according to an interesting new study of the links between physical activity and imagination. It finds that active people come up with more and better ideas during tests of their inventiveness than people who are relatively sedentary, and suggests that if we wish to be more innovative, we might also want to be movers and shakers.”

Duration and intensity are two important aspects of exercise. Both have their particular benefits and both are important to overall health and optimal results when exercising. Both need to be utilized while working out or exercising for overall benefit.
The article, “Can 4 Seconds of Exercise Make a Difference?” by Gretchen Reynolds reviews the importance of intensity in exercising and analyzes a case study of intervals of 4 seconds of intensity within a one minute period. She states,
“In what is probably the definitive word on how little exercise we can get away with, a new study finds that a mere four seconds of intense intervals, repeated until they amount to about a minute of total exertion, lead to rapid and meaningful improvements in strength, fitness and general physical performance among middle-aged and older adults.”
