Why is it that the best ideas always pop into your head once you have gotten up from your desk?

We always think of the mind telling the body what to do, but the communication goes the other way too, from the body to the mind. "How The Body Knows Its Mind" is about how our body and our surroundings affect how we think, learn, and behave. Simple actions can have big effects on our ability to learn, perform and feel our best – we just have to know what they are.

How the Body Knows the Mind is a tour de force that teaches us the revolutionary new science of how our own physical interaction with the world around us strongly influences our ability to learn and perform. I highly recommend it.
