Take your hamster on the (habi-)trail?

I have a tendency toward hamster-head, a condition in which the small animal that is my brain runs constantly in a circle, never quite getting anywhere, but unable to stop.  I am pretty sure I am not the only one.

So far, the best strategy for getting my hamster under control is hamster-body, otherwise known as exercise.  Getting good and breathless improves mood and focus.  It promotes healthy sleep.  Also, when all I can think about is how much my thighs burn on the five millionth squat, I have no choice but to stay in the present moment.

A tired hamster is a good hamster.
