Brain functions better after exercise

Walking is now considered a form of exercise but was originally a form of transportation built into our daily life. Modern technology with all it's benefits have made us more sedentary creating many serious health issues.

Walking briskly, jogging or running has been proven very beneficial for your brain because it increases blood circulation and the oxygen and glucose that reach your brain. Keeping ones brain healthy is so simple all you have to do is what comes natural to the human body, walk.

So get out there each day and walk briskly, jog or run. You'll feel so much better when you've finished and your brain will love you for it!!

Keep It Simple, Consistent and Fun.

Exercise and your brain

As we get older our ability to run fast, swim long distances or play our favorite sports begins to decline. We accept this as getting older and not an indication of physical problems.

Yet we become alarmed when forgetfulness and memory loss creep into our everyday lives as we pass 50 years of age. The fear that dementia may be on the horizon creates a lot of anxiety for us. All of this in my opinion is unwarranted. If your body slows down as you age why wouldn't your brain do the same.

We all know that if we exercise daily and eat properly our health will not deteriorate nearly as fast. That's all we need to do.

Keep it Simple, Consistent and Fun.
