BUILD A BETTER BRAIN THROUGH EXERCISE AND MOVEMENT

< We are born to move! Our body and brain need to move to stay healthy. Exercise increases neurotransmitters in the brain that regulate attention, mood and movement. Exercise is good for sleep, reduces stress and improves memory. 

 Here are some of the benefits from different forms of exercise:
- Regular aerobic exercise improves memory
- Resistance training improves cognitive function
- Yoga improves mood and decreases anxiety
- Tai Chi improves balance, sleep quality and cognitive function
- Outdoor exercise (i.e. hiking walking, biking, jogging) reduces tension, confusion, anger and increases energy

Vigorous exercise results in the highest quality of sleep.

The brain responds to inflammation. Any exercise protects against chronic inflammation. Some of these chronic inflammatory diseases are:
- Alzheimer’s
- Arthritis
- Asthma
- Atherosclerosis
- Crohn’s disease
- Dermatitis
- Irritable bowel syndrome
- Parkinson’s disease

Establishing and maintaining exercise habits
improves quality of life for everyone.

Please eat and exercise responsibly.
