Exercise and Your Brain

We all know regular exercise is great for our physical health, but did you know it can be just as important for mental health? Exercise causes several positive changes in our brains that can improve mental function by improving circulation and potentially stimulating the production of new brain cells. Even moderate exercise (aka walking) can release positive neurotransmitters that improve our moods and relieve stress. According to several studies, exercise may even be as effective as medications at releasing these neurotransmitters. Although the exact cause is not understood, regular exercise increases learning and memory retention across populations. 

Still not convinced exercise is important for brain health?  According to the National Institute of Health, regular exercise has been shown to delay the loss of cognitive function that comes with age. Individuals who do not partake in any form of regular exercise may be twice as likely to develop cognitive disorders such as Alzheimer's. Get out there and exercise; it's great for your body and mind!
