Did you know that physical exercise keeps your brain healthy?
A growing body of scientific literature shows that regular physical activity is essential for and improves brain health.
30 minutes of continuous moderate intensity activity 5 to 7 days a week helps cognitive function including attention, focus/concentration, problem-solving, and memory. Regular exercise also helps to reduce anxiety and restore emotional balance. It also helps to reduce the frequency and severity of migraines.
One study found that cognitive decline was reduced by half in those adults over the age of 45 who exercised regularly compared to those who didn’t. Physical exercise also helps you sleep better, lose weight and reduces your risk of many other chronic health conditions. You can become active at any age and still reap the benefits. So, let’s get moving!
