Why Exercise Is So Important

You know that exercise is good for you, right?  But do you know why?  It's not just that you feel better (though you do, once you get a routine going) but that exercise actually changes your brain and "turns it on."  Dr. John Ratey, who knows a great deal about the science behind this topic, explains the connection between exercise, learning, attention and more in this TEDx talk.  It's definitely worth a few minutes of your time!  And it's very relevant for couples.  Want to create new habits?  If you are both exercising you improve your ability to succeed at a very physical level.
