Being a kinesthetic learner and thinker is tiring. I have to do laps and laps of parramatta park just to get one paper written. By the time I get back to my computer, I'm stuffed!
Anyone else out there have to move to think?
How do you get around it?

I just walk and listen to music, usually late at night. Not so much learning as making connections from stuff already in there. Walking is good for listening to lectures too. Either on their own is boring. Swimming is good for thought, too.

Do non-kinesthetic learners die younger than the kinesthetic ones? Albert Einstein once ran his tinny aground while deep in thought. I guess the k's could suffer from sports injuries and fatal accidents.

Coffee works for me as well. Gets the blood pumping through the grey matter:

"This coffee falls into your stomach . . . sparks shoot all the way up to the brain. From that moment on, everything becomes agitated. Ideas quick-march into motion like battalions of a grand army to its legendary fighting ground, and the battle rages. Memories charge in, bright flags on high; the cavalry of metaphor deploys with a magnificent gallop; the artillery of logic rushes up with clattering wagons and cartridges; on imagination’s orders, sharpshooters sight and fire; forms and shapes and characters rear up; the paper is spread with ink—for the nightly labor begins and ends with torrents of this black water, as a battle opens and concludes with black powder.” — Honore de Balzac
