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.

How often do you find yourself feeling completely exhausted, all your energy spent, overwhelmed and stressed out from a long workweek?

Another fantastic post from LaRae Quy.  The image is powerful and symbolic.  One of the reasons I like this post so much is because no matter how much we go for and achieve, there always seems to be limiting thoughts and creep in and stop us from pursuing our goals.  

 

Here is a great tip that can help all of us:

 

        ==================================

 

Here is an exercise that might help you identify your self-limiting barriers and develop the mental toughness to break through them:

 

Write down a list of barriers or behaviors that are holding you back. Below are some questions to help you start. Start each sentence with “I” so that it is a personal statement about your behavior.

 

1.What are the barriers getting in the way of your success and happiness?

 

2.What are the behaviors that you want to change?

 

3.When do you make excuses or not follow through?
