    What do these highly successful people know that we need to know? People who exercise are more productive. When was the last time you saw a breakthrough in your word count numbers?

    Creativity Boost - There's an amazing chain reaction that occurs when you elevate your heart rate: increase blood flow, more oxygen and glucose to your brain, several key hormones are released that aid in the parts of your brain that spark creativity and imagination. Think like Sherlock Holmes.
