Sitting all day uses your mental energy, but let’s be honest – you are not moving much. Your exhaustion is mental, even though it feels the same way as physical. The movement generated energy that helped us keep focus, improved learning, and enhanced the attention.
This book is an excerpt and a summary of „Money: Master the game” also by Tony Robbins.
