True. While running, blood circulates more actively through the blood vessels. And due to this, not only the cells are better supplied with oxygen, but also toxins and toxins are washed out more intensively. And also running (especially slow long running) is a cyclic sport that develops psychological endurance. This is a kind of meditation. There are several articles on running on my website.
Running is the norm for humans.
That is, in fact, man is born to run . This proves a number of physiological adaptations in the body. There are many versions of why this is so: either he needed to move long distances, or run a lot, or catch up - most likely, all at once. If you look at the biomechanics of the leg itself, it becomes clear that it is adapted precisely for measured and long-distance running.
Running is the normal pace of life for a person, and pace is rhythm, speed. All our processes in the brain are rhythmic, they, like music, proceed under the influence of a certain measured rhythm: three-beat, four-beat, and so on. And it doesn't matter if these are background processes or active ones.
Therefore we think more and best when we run, but not rushed . Apparently, when running, we need to think evolutionarily where to run and how to escape.
In this plane, memory and running are inextricably linked, and one contributes to the other. There are studies that prove that during and after running, growth factors are produced that determine the formation of new neural connections and the formation of synapses . So, if we are going to study something, we must first move and run. Thanks to this, insights can happen, new information is better absorbed, the amount of RAM increases, the hippocampus develops.
We are not aware of how we need to rearrange our legs, but simply run. Therefore, those parts of the brain that are responsible for creative thinking, for logic, they are not distracted to some extent. Roughly speaking, they have time to think. Probably, you noticed that on the go, poetry is being composed, and interesting thoughts appear.
Running is addictive. During training, dopamine is released - one of the hormones of happiness . This happiness comes from physical activity and happiness from knowledge. This is where the contradiction between intellectuals and athletes begins. If a person begins to run regularly and a lot, and even more so to swing, his interest and motivation to engage in intellectual activity decreases, and vice versa. We need to find a balance. It consists in regular physical activity of no more than 80% of the maximum permissible norm, strictly before engaging in intellectual activity, because then one multiplies the other . It turns out such a delayed action of running during mental activity. In other words, we ran for a bit and then engaged in intellectual work.
