3 Ways Exercise Increases Brain Health
Why do we need a Healthy Brain? We want to live longer, perform better, set records, and achieve our full potential. This can only be done when the mind is firing on all cylinders and optimized for high performance in the long term.
Thomas Edison once said, "The chief function of the Body is to carry the Brain around." Ryan Munsey shares his top 3 ways that Exercise can increase Brain Health.
1) Motion creates Emotion. Any type of physical movement will increase blood flow, oxygenation, and improve your overall mood.
2) Physical activity increases Mental activity. Studies show that something as simple as walking for 20 minutes can double or triple Brain activity.
3) High Intensity & Endurance training increases BDNF (Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor), which signals our Brain to create new cells. This is essential for mental & physical performance as well as longevity.
