When we talk about strong choices in our program we mean much more than just your muscles. Exercising is an important part of a overall healthy lifestyle and it’s good for our brain too. Working out can help improve brain health and development in several different ways.
First, exercise increases blood flow to the brain, supplying it with more energy and oxygen. This helps to improve neurological processes and research has shown that working out can positively affect brain structure, particularly in the areas of memory, learning and mood.
Exercising also increases the neurotransmitter levels, such as dopamine and serotonin, which boosts cognitive function and can help reduce anxiety and depression. It can even improve sleep, and sleeping well is essential for brain health.
Physical activity also increases the production of nerve growth factor, which can help to create new neurons as well as encourage existing neurons to grow and form stronger connections. This can help to improve cognitive skills, such as problem-solving, memory and executive functioning.
Lastly, exercising can be a form of meditation where people can let go of the days stresses.
