Movement Immediately Helps Your Memory Improve, Right Then And There

      A recent medical study caught my eye, so today I am excited to share it with you here. Researchers looked at how exercise helps to boost memory, and found that there are literally immediate benefits to your memory function after literally just one bout of exercising. Published September 2020 in Scientific Reports, this study finds that one session of exercising (cycling on a stationary bike was the exercise used in this study) significantly improved motor sequence memory — immediately! This is super encouraging, because it was not looking at just the long term benefits from exercise (which …

It’s Never Too Late To Extend Your Life Just By Getting Active

    Dammit. Now none of us have any excuse to not exercise.     All my life I hated exercising in the traditional sense — I loved playing soccer in school and I loved chasing after my kids as a mom and I love going on long walks after dinner as a middle aged adult… it’s not that I mind being active… but as far as an exercise program, I never could stick to it.

And excitingly, this brain boost is independent of cognitive status, meaning even elderly who have already begun to exhibit cognitive changes will benefit from increasing their activity level. The results …
