Exercise for Brain Health

The studies are out; mental and physical exercise improves the brain. It is amazing for the brain. Exercise increases concentration, memory, IQ, willpower, cognitive functioning, and executive functions. It helps mental health by reducing anxiety, negative moods, stress, and depression. It boosts self-esteem and confidence. It improves sleep. It raises emotional resilience and increases pain tolerance. It increases energy and reduces fatigue. It slows down brain atrophy, increases neuroplasticity, it protects the heart, and lowers the risk of stroke. What more can you ask for?  Regular exercise is the key to longevity and a healthy life.  Start slow and build a program you can sustain. Start with a goal: I want to exercise 5 times a week. Create a SMART objective to meet your goals: I will walk at least 5 times a week for 30 minutes at a time. All it takes is 30 minutes of exercise a day. Your life depends on it.
