Exercise for your Body and Brain!

By

We all know exercise is good for us…no question. If we want to stay healthy, we have to maintain an active lifestyle. But did you know that exercise makes the mind healthy too?

Exercise is the single best thing you can do for your brain in terms of mood, memory, and learning," said Harvard Medical School psychiatrist John Ratey, author of the book, Spark: The Revolutionary New Science of Exercise and the Brain.

Recent research reveals that exercise does have a direct link with brain health. Until the 1960’s, it was an accepted truth that we can’t grow new brain cells. However, recent studies show that exercise can stimulate a process called neurogenesis or the brain’s ability to generate new brain cells. This, in the long run, promotes neuroplasticity – or the brain’s ability to reorganize itself and change by forming new neural connections throughout life. This process is linked to learning, fighting stress, and even the body’s ability to heal itself.

Here lies the problem: when you’re depressed, anxious, or stressed, how do you motivate yourself to exercise?

The answer lies in relaxation and meditation. By engaging in meditation, we promote better brain health which helps us do other tasks like exercising better.
