OCHS CQU (Kimberly Van Lathum)'s curator insight, March 17, 2015 3:32 AM

It's true if you ask me.

For fun and defensive skills I have trained with South Pacific Taekwondo Federation for almost three years, and have achieved the rank of black belt, preparing now for my first degree! 
In 5 years time I'm aiming to be a second degree, there is such a long waiting period between grading :(
But in respect to how "exercise boosts IQ", I couldn't agree more! 
For me, fitness and health are just as important as academic advancement.  When I'm stuck on an assignment or suffering from writers block I find that even 10 minutes spent walking, running, skipping, practicing kicks, strikes, blocks and patterns leaves my brain clear and ready to tackle the hard questions! 
Aside from the cognitive benefits, coordination and self esteem are boosted.  Skills such as perseverance, integrity, and indomitable spirit can be developed through physical activity and applied to academia, and visa versa. 
Exercise and IQ should really be considered equal when looking at the overall health of a person.

Free Coursera course "What a plant knows" by Danny Chamovitz

Free Coursera course "What a plant knows" by Danny Chamovitz | Evolution | Scoop.it
"Can we say that plants have senses? You will learn how plants sense their environment and how scientists study plant senses. You will be exposed to both classic and modern experiments in plant biology, and may even start to question what defines us as humans."
Via Mary Williams

Great course.
