Engaging Millenial Minds
Physically Fit, Mentally Flexible.
Exercise tones the legs, builds bigger biceps and strengthens the heart. But of all the body parts that benefit from a good workout, the brain may be the big winner.
Physical fitness directly affects our mind and plays a crucial role in the way the brain develops and functions. Moreover, exercise is linked to brain changes throughout all stages of life, beginning in infancy and lasting through old age.
With broad benefits on cognition, particularly executive functioning, including improvements in attention, working memory and the ability to multitask, a combination of different exercise – aerobic, strength, balance and flexibility – is best. Exercise daily to boost your brain power.
