Exercise for your Brain

MRI scan of brain

If you needed another reason to convince you to exercise, now it seems absolutely clear that physical exercise improves brain function. It’s good for your body and your brain, especially if you get your heart rate up.

Listen to the whole story (physical exercise for the brain is just part of it) on NPR’s Fresh Air or click this link to get a recap (where you can view a transcript of the whole show or listen to it).

Thank you for giving your time to stop and read my blog. I hope it encourages you to keep moving. Move and the body will be happier. And when you're moving you can hike, run, swim in Jell-O, race over non-Newtonian fluids, travel the world or build igloos--if that's your thing. If not, you can watch me do it. This is just a spot to try and feel good about life.
