Healthy Lifestyle….Memory Tip !
MOVE IT OR LOSE IT
“Physical activity is vital because it increases blood flow and oxygen to the brain, as well as the rest of your body. The Department of Health and Human Services recommends at least a hundred and fifty minutes of moderate aerobic exercise a week, such as brisk walking, or light jogging. Alternatively, you can do seventy-five minutes of vigorous aerobic activity, such as jogging or aerobic dancing spread throughout the week. Research reported in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences also concluded that aerobic exercise not only improves but also prevents shrinkage in the hippocampus, our memory center. ”
