Why your smart friends can seem like such slackers...
Marlene Breverman stashed this in Psychology
People who like to use their brains are a lot less physically active than people who don't, according to research published this month in the Journal of Health Psychology.
The life of the mind requires naps.
Yes! Lots of napping!
And the body can jog to the refrigerator.
That's not much of a jog.
Quantity, not quality.
Ha! Quality matters. :)
Also, not to be prosaic, the life of the mind requires a lot of READING. Of books, even. And other kinds of studying. I once trained myself to read on the treadmill (because I also like exercising, obvs not that smart) but it was just a way to combine two unsatisfying experiences so I finally decided to enjoy both without combining them.
