When I started working I noticed this, and I knew I had to do something to keep my body as trained as my hands and brain were. So I decided to go back to an old costume I adopted while I was writing my thesis... jogging.
Jogging is a very simple discipline where you set a target destination and run at a certain pace, fast enough to not be walking, slow enough to keep your stamina.
The benefitsThese are personal facts, that might not apply to everybody:
- Relaxation, it keeps you away from your daily problems for some hours, clearing your thoughts and mind.
- Concentration, well... you need it, you have to control your legs, your breath, and your speed while checking what's in your way.
- Fitness, it keeps your middle-body in a good shape, if you do it regularly.
- Discipline, you need a lot of will to jog when it's raining, when it's cold, when it's hot.
