Moticise’s emphasis on the mind-body connection is based on leading-edge studies showing that physical exercise significantly and measurably enhances mental capacities—and vice versa. Several key studies by John Ratey, a Harvard University neuroscientist and author of Spark: The Revolutionary New Science of Exercise and the Brain, have overturned the commonly held belief that our brain cells do not regenerate–in fact, they do, in a process triggered by exercise called neurogenesis. By focusing your mind toward your vision of success during exercise, you are establishing new neural pathways specifically aimed toward your goal.
While Ratey’s work shows the beneficial influence the body can have on the mind, another series of studies from the American College of Sports Medicine has shown the beneficial effects of the mind on the body. A 2013 study on the psychobiology of exercise is the first to demonstrate that positive self-talk increases physical endurance. By modifying your perception of your exertion and by focusing on positivity, you can actually push yourself farther physically than you thought–in exercise, and in life.
