Having a healthy brain requires a healthy body. So the time to start moving and being more physically active is right now, and I mean today! Regular exercise or physical activity at ANY age helps to maintain brain functions such as memory, mental acuity, and cognition during old age.
Not only do you get brain function benefits, but you also lower the risk of those scary brain diseases such as dementia, cognitive decline, and loss of mental acuity.
The best news from recent research is that regularly participating in small amounts of physical exercise (20 min a day) is great for your brain. The secret to the benefits mentioned above is to make it a lifelong habit. The cumulative effect will provide the most benefit and the best defense against the loss of brain function as you age.
Find a physical activity you love and get moving!
