About this phenomenon, Dr. Roberts speculates that “humans move their hands when speaking, so there is a relationship between movement and thinking”.
Furthermore, he presents an evolutionary reason, “It may have been because people in the primitive era usually got new information by walking and moving.”

How to make practical use of this in your life

When studying, learn while doing light exercises.
For example, study while walking or studying while stepping on a stepper.
However, it is difficult to study while always exercising.
In such a case, exercise between studying.
For example, if you go up stairs or do squats during breaks, more blood will flow to your brain and your brain will be activated.
Doing so will improve your memory and focus.
By the way, historical greats (such as Einstein) also used to take exercises such as walks.
It is also a good idea to work while standing using a standing desk.
