Let me support that by pointing out that research has found that regular aerobic exercise results in better short-term memory. Since programmers often have to keep multiple things in short term memory, improvements there are very helpful.

Note that the effect is very specific to aerobic exercise. It does not happen with, say, weight training. The cause is believed to be that regular aerobic exercise improves blood flow, and the brain responds to blood flow.

[robby_dobby]: marto: Oh, I see you're from an even colder north :-)
[robby_dobby]: marto: Ldn, right now
[marto]: icy here today, snow on the hills
[Corion]: Oh yes, Friday!
[Corion]: Last day at $work before 3 weeks of vacation (well, not that I'd be really travelling, but no-work-time ;) )
[robby_dobby]: marto: yeah, I'd eventually visit Glasgow some day - just to visit the home town of GHC :-)
[robby_dobby]: Corion: Oh, that's awesome! Your timing is perfect enough to see all hell break loose when you get back at work :P
[marto]: well, let me know in advance, I'll buy you a pint :)
[Corion]: robby_dobby: No, I'm returning in the second workweek of January. The main hectic parts are in the first days after the start of the new year
[robby_dobby]: marto: and, I'm not sure I'd be around here long enough for YAPC::EU
