Boost Your Brain Power with Exercise
This is why getting fit will boost your brain power.
1. It helps your memory
Exercise, especially aerobic exercise, will boost your brain power and improve your memory. Just 20 minutes of aerobic activity can help information processes and memory functions in the brain.
2. It can make your brain more flexible
Neuroplasticity is the ability of your brain to change when you learn and experience new things. Both aerobic exercise and strength training has been proven to make your brain more able to learn new things and become more flexible.
3. It boosts focus
Exercise increases blood flow to your brain. This nourishes the brain with oxygenated blood which has been proven to increase your focus and concentration.
4. It makes you more creative
Research shows that exercise helps you organise and interpret information. Just one workout can start the process. Over the long-term exercise will change the white matter in the brain which helps your brain cells connect.
It’s so Important to Stay Connected
Using fitness will improve your health in so many ways. Remember that one of the most important ways to make fitness fun is to be social and stay connected. Simple workouts like running, riding or walking, paired with an app like Fitlink can really boost your mental and physical health over time because you’ll be connected to a global community of likeminded people who are after the same goal- to get fit, healthy and happy!
