We all know that we need to warm up before engaging in strenuous physical activity, since people are more likely to injure tight, unprepared muscles. But the way we warm up is also important.
Physical activity is good for more than priming the pump, though. I find it also helps when I’m writing along and get stuck.
I always figured that, one day when I grew up, I would be a writer. Trick is, you have to actually write something before that can happen.
