Here’s Something Else for you to Juggle

The entire staff of Mirandala.org (and, perhaps, a prerequiste for employment here), knows how to juggle. Why just this holiday season, we both brought juggling clubs back to Chicago. In practicing, I quickly learned that gloves were imperative during practice.

But enough about us—seems that this hobby is really, really good for our smarts! A recent study stated:

“A comparison of brain-imaging scans of non-jugglers and other volunteers before they learned to juggle and three months later, revealed an increase in grey matter in certain areas of the newly trained jugglers’ brains.”

But once you start, you can’t stop…check out this quote:

“In a report in the science journal Nature, May and his colleagues said brain scans done three months after the new jugglers had stopped juggling showed the increase in grey matter had been reduced.”

    I better start juggling more! I’m feeling a steady decline in my gray matter these days…

    I haven’t juggled in ten years… and here I thought that my decreased grey matter activity was due to getting older or the strain of the working world – but thank you for giving me the answer I needed. I will try and start juggling again today…

    i used to juggle. Its one of those things that you never lose. Sometimes addicting tho. I used to juggle so much, I was juggling when I was driving, and got into an accident. My insurance company in Pittsburgh didn’ believe me when I told them, and they got a good laugh at it. I still dont think they believe me to this day.
