WALKING IMPROVES CREATIVITY
Steve Jobs held important discussions while walking. Mark Zuckerberg is said to also hold walking meetings. Various documents show that Aristotle had the habit of walking while lecturing. Peter Tchaikovsky, the legendary Russian composer, believed in taking a walk for two hours a day – no more, no less. Did all these great minds think up their best ideas while walking? Maybe. Researchers from Stanford University confirm that walking boosts creativity.
A study by psychologists from the University of California show that telling a 10-year-old girl that she is too fat will likely lead her to being obese by the time she is 19. The researchers examined African-american and white girls living in Northern California. Girls who were called “too fat” were more likely to be obese, and the likelihood increased depending on the number of people who called each girl fat. The stigma around body weight increases stress, which normally leads to overeating.
