HERE: Mental Energy Depletion
HERE: Cardio Therapy
HERE: Juggling Therapy
... I have been receiving messages and emails from parents who went out to buy trampolines, exercise bikes, skipping ropes etc...
They all report that they have happier and more relaxed children. This is not surprising because cardio exercise produces dopamine (the happy hormone). It also happens that dopamine enhances the brain's ability to learn and remember - HERE.
In other words, happy children learn better.
Anyway, this post is about the silly image that keeps surfacing in my head the past few days.
I wonder how many children are now doing cardio therapy... 100, 200, 300? Now, imagine for a moment that 100 children stop every 40 minutes to do cardio (and produce dopamine). These children feel momentarily a small bubble of happiness. Imagine now that these bubbles of happiness rise upwards to heaven.
God is seated on His throne in heaven. The bubbles rise up to him and burst, giving off a fragrance. Do you suppose that God is pleased at the smell of Children's Happiness?
Such a silly image, I know... but I cannot get it out of my head.
