Albert Einstein took long walks when pondering complex equations. The genius often commented that many of his Eureka moments came to him whilst walking.

We explore the link between walking and intelligence in GENIUS INTELLIGENCE: Secret Techniques and Technologies to Increase IQ, book one in our Underground Knowledge Series.

German composer/pianist Ludwig van Beethoven was another of history’s geniuses who took long, solitary walks to incubate creative ideas, and there are many other examples.

We found one study at Stanford University showed that subjects came up with more creative ideas during and immediately after a walk compared to those who simply sat at a desk. Certainly, there’s a rhythmic flow to walking that puts one almost in a trance-like or meditative state when walking. Other physical exercise such as dancing, cycling or running probably delivers similar results.

Walking is just one of many accelerated learning methods we highlight. Others include brain waves common to geniuses and how to induce those brain waves; mental techniques celebrities use to process information whilst asleep or in virtual worlds; chemicals students employ to kick-start the brain into overdrive; and cutting-edge technologies business execs and pro athletes employ to gain a cerebral edge over competitors.

Athletes and sports medicine professionals are united in their opinion that exercise helps your mental function. Runners experience the pleasant – many say euphoric – “runner’s high” that comes with intense, sustained exercise. Such exercise (not just running) increases serotonin in the brain, leading to improved mental clarity.

GENIUS INTELLIGENCE is available via Amazon as a paperback and Kindle ebook.
