Imagine you are juggling a variety of objects simultaneously in front of many people on the street. Is it possible to control all of them accurately, feeling the tension?

I guess a non-juggler would say they couldn’t do it and it would incredible if someone could. However, it is just the result of accumulated training. I promise that you also can become a juggler if you are given a week.

Juggling is not just a performance. It has hidden benefits people usually overlook. In this article, I want to share three unknown and mind-blowing facts about juggling. I’m not so religious about this seemingly-hilarious activity but just wanted to make more known among the general public.

The natural heating effect

This is good news for people who live in a cold area because juggling can warm you up. As you may know, juggling creates heat by friction.

Compared to other sports, juggling excels at helping someone warm up. This is because jugglers don’t need to wait for anything and can start when they’re ready. Basically, juggling is a lonely sport. For people who want to play a sport as a team, they probably won’t enjoy juggling as much. However, for people who are busy and don’t want to wait on others, this is a great aspect.

When a juggler is in harsh winter, he/she can quickly start juggling and feel the effects immediately.

The positive thinking effect

Oftentimes, non-jugglers aren’t aware of this positive effect which saddens me because more people need to know.

Everyone can reach a comfortable state of mind by juggling. This is why jugglers are able to make great efforts constantly.

Also, Juggling gives us the ability to get over difficulties.
Once you’ve mastered this algorithm to live a better life, you can use it wherever you may be.

From this point of view, juggling is a long-term investment which can affect you in a variety of ways.

Improvement of working memory

Do you want to be a genius like Albert Einstein?

Of course, everyone wants to be intelligent.
If you are one of those people that have the urge to become smarter and learn something new, I highly recommend starting juggling as a new hobby.
It may seem hilarious to others, but you’ll be improving your mind too!

Surprisingly, a lot of papers about the relationship between juggling and the brain have published in the 21st century.
If you want more proof, do a Google search for “juggling and brain” and look at the results.

In my experience, I was certainly able to get high marks on some tests. This is because of not only the direct effect on the brain but also the positive effect I mentioned earlier.

Finally, what is “juggling”?

Juggling has a myriad of good points which include more than I’ve covered here.

If this article was interesting to you, I highly recommend looking up other facts about juggling.

To start, you don’t need to buy anything if you have throwable objects around you.
Wherever you are in life, you can do it now.

The more people truly understand the benefits and art of juggling, the happier I am.
Thank you so much for reading the article through to the end.
