Remember Xiao Ruoteng, a gymnast who regretted missing the gold medal at the Tokyo Olympic Games and applauded her opponent with lonely eyes?
This gymnast, who won the gold medal in the men’s individual all-around gymnastics in the 14th National Games, is not only heroic in the sports field, but also a "treasure boy" in life.
He is keen on rap, likes to make his own coffee, and even is the "Teacher Tony" in the gymnastics team …
He not only loves literature and art, but also personally participates in the creation of lyrics. "Taking Dreams as Horses" is what he did after the Olympic Games.
Xiao Ruoteng, who is so versatile in literature and art, really broke our stereotype of athletes.
What kind of mind is simple and limbs are developed?
People with truly developed limbs will not have a simple mind.
Most of those who live a sober life and work well have created strong enough brains through sports.
However, with the increasing convenience of life, most people exercise less and less, and many diseases are getting younger and younger.
Paying attention to exercise and keeping fit with your heart can’t be ignored.
As the Prime Minister of Qin said during the Warring States Period:
"Running water does not rot, and the household axis is not awkward and moving."
What’s more, exercise can not only strengthen our physique and give us a better external image, but also benefit our brains.
Exercise can make you think clearly.
From Su Dongpo, a great poet in the Song Dynasty, to Bernard Shaw, a famous dramatist, many celebrities, ancient and modern, Chinese and foreign, have a special liking for sports.
Thinker Rousseau also said:
"Walking promotes my thoughts, and my body must keep moving before my brain will start."
When your mind comes to a dead end, stop thinking and let your body move.
The brain is often like opening another door, which makes people suddenly enlightened.
So is the pianist Beethoven.
Every day after lunch, Beethoven would go out for a walk with a pencil and a pile of paper, and sometimes he would not come back until dusk.
For Beethoven, walking is a conversation with God, a blend with nature, and a moment of inspiration for generate at any time.
Once, he walked with his friends, but gradually, he was immersed in his own thoughts, thinking while exercising.
Until nightfall, Beethoven was pleasantly surprised: "I found the theme!" "
Then he flew home and played a new movement on the piano.
It can be seen that exercise can not only make people gain the vitality of the body, but also get better exercise in their minds.
This is not a case.
In 1990, a famous biologist did an experiment like this:
After six months of aerobic exercise, a group of people who don’t like sports at ordinary times have obviously improved their thinking ability.
When this conclusion was published in Nature, more scholars did related research.
The results show that exercise can really improve the working efficiency of the nervous system and make people smarter.
Because when we exercise, the blood circulation is improved and more oxygen enters the brain, so the working environment of the brain is improved and the thinking is naturally more agile.
More importantly, when we exercise, we will produce dopamine, a neurotransmitter that can bring energy and motivation to people.
It is like a bridge connecting brain nerve cells. The more it secretes, the wider the bridge deck, and the more information it can flow.
Therefore, after exercise, we will feel clear thinking and quick brain response.
No wonder the writer Goethe once sighed:
"My most precious thoughts and their best expressions all appeared when I was walking."
Exercise can broaden our thinking, make our energy flow and make people smarter.
Exercise is the best way to "sit still"
Lu You, who wrote "eighty-year-old is still healthy, learning to irrigate the garden all his life", has created countless poems in his life and handed down more than 9,000 poems, and is also a beneficiary who loves sports.
In the army, he studied martial arts; When he was in the country, he cut grass and collected firewood; When outdoors, climbing mountains is one of his hobbies.
In his later years, he chose "blazing" to keep fit.
The hobby of sports made Lu You gain a good physique, which made him live a long life at the age of war and chaos and food and clothing difficulties, at the age of 84.
It also gave him a strong concentration, which was used to create poems, with high yield and high quality, and occupied an important position in the poetry circle of the Southern Song Dynasty.
Writer lev tolstoy said:
"It is extremely painful for a person who is immersed in mental work if he doesn’t move his limbs often."
Because exercise is the best way to strengthen the brain, with proper exercise, our body will secrete a substance called adrenaline.
It can help us find the best state of attention.
Researchers at the University of Illinois conducted a series of tests on 20 9-year-old students.
They found that students who have just finished participating in sports activities pay more attention to answering questions than students who have not participated in sports.
The "Zero Time Sports Plan" implemented by a middle school near Chicago also confirmed this point.
Let the students get to school early and do sports before the formal class.
Until the heartbeat reaches the highest value or 70% of the maximum oxygen uptake.
At this time, the class began, and the effect of the class was obviously improved, especially the concentration was obviously improved.
It is no wonder that in the TV series "The Ideal City", Su Xiao, the hostess, often thinks while skipping rope when she encounters bottlenecks in her work.
It is worth noting that adrenaline is "melodramatic".
Too little secretion will make people feel bored and even tired;
If you secrete too much, you will be too excited and unable to calm down and do things.
Only by secreting just the right amount of adrenaline, so that our brain is at the critical point of relaxation and tension, our attention will be at its best.
Therefore, scientific exercise, mastering the degree of exercise, can maximize our concentration.
Let’s listen to everything we learn, sit still and learn well.
Exercise can best make you "remember"
"In fact, we have done other experiments before. Whether it is moderate intensity or high intensity aerobic training, they can improve the short-term memory and long-term memory of ordinary people.
As long as you can run for 15 minutes for a long time, the effect will be obvious. "
This is the result of a follow-up experiment by Dr. Paul Lopley, director of the Sports and Memory Laboratory of the University of Mississippi, and his colleagues.
In this experiment, Dr. Paul Lopley selected 24 participants aged 18 to 35.
They memorized 15 complicated new words with the same difficulty before, during and after running.
The final result shows that participants’ memory will be significantly improved after 15 minutes of moderate-intensity running.
Indeed, in the ceaseless progress of mankind, more and more people find that "moving quotient" is of great help to our memory.
Some people have studied and summarized the trends of the top candidates in the college entrance examination in recent years, and found that nearly 60% of schoolmasters love sports.
Professor Wang Zongping, director of the Center for Business Studies at Nanjing University of Science and Technology, put forward the view that "business development stimulates the top students in the college entrance examination":
"It is no exaggeration to say that it is the champion of the college entrance examination who likes sports who took an hour out of 10 hours of cultural study for sports and activated their bodies;
Let the blood flow faster, the spirit is more full, and the learning efficiency is higher. "
Among them, exercise will also stimulate the hippocampus, a key brain area that affects learning and memory, and promote the increase of serotonin.
Serotonin can effectively stimulate the communication of neurons, feed back to the hippocampus, and promote the formation and enhancement of new memories.
The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences once reported that:
"Compared with their sedentary peers, the hippocampus of those who exercise regularly has increased by 2%."
Therefore, don’t cherish the idea of "valuing wisdom over body", and don’t think that a person is born smart or not.
As Plato said:
"In order to make human beings have a successful life, God provides two channels-education and sports."
Nowadays, more and more people combine these two methods to create amazing results.
Your body is the beginning of everything.
Lv Zhengcao, a former minister of the Ministry of Railways who can still play tennis in his eighties and is light and agile, said:
"All departments of the human body use it to enter, and use it to retreat.
Therefore, we should not only pay attention to physical exercise, but also pay attention to brain activity, so as to effectively delay aging. "
Exercise itself is a kind of cure. When sweat flows down, it cures all fatigue, clears the mind and makes people happy.
1. When your thoughts are not smooth, just put on your running shoes and start.
Looking back on life, we will find that when we stay in the thoughts of solving a problem for a long time, it is easy to get stuck.
It is said that "people who can rest will work", but rest is not doing nothing in a narrow sense. Changing the environment for the brain is also brain-strengthening.
Putting down what you are doing for a while and exercising will make your mind clear, and maybe there will be innovative discoveries.
For example, choosing sports that require quick response can help us build good hand-eye coordination.
Similar to table tennis, badminton and other sports, you need to stay calm and focus on sports, which can make your brain fully relaxed.
Therefore, after exercise, the wall of thinking will no longer be so indestructible, and even "turn around" and have new ideas.
2. When you are in a bad mood, move consciously.
Scientist Einstein said:
"I like walking all my life, and sports have brought me endless fun."
Because dopamine, adrenaline and serotonin produced during exercise can not only enhance our memory, improve our thinking ability, make us more focused, but also make our mood happy.
Therefore, after proper exercise, we will feel calm, clear-headed and even have a happy sense of accomplishment at work.
The so-called: "activities are well-organized, and the five internal organs are self-harmonious."
When you are in a bad mood, consciously let yourself move.
Go out for a walk and visit the park, so that these substances produced in the body can arouse our positive emotions.
Let us have a better state, so as to get twice the result with half the effort.
Exercise is not only an indispensable way to keep in good health, but also can exercise the brain, make us smarter and make our life different.
If you have missed the plum appointment, don’t take the peach blossom again.
Going out, now is the best time.
OrderWatchingLet’s move together.
Take some time out in the busy, and leave some energy in the hurry.
Under the tempering of life, the body is treated well by time, and the brain is getting smarter and smarter.
Such years, quiet and calm, unhurried, beautiful!
