It's common advice to go for a walk when you need a break or you're having trouble focusing. Why? General exercise activates the feel-good chemicals in your brain, including dopamine, which drives motivation and mental focus, and endorphins, which dampen pain perception and help you push through barriers. Movement also helps quiet the frontal lobes, which can unlock flow potential. All of this is beneficial when you're meeting daily with patients who need you at your best. Learn how you can use movement intentionally to unleash creativity and widen your perspective.
