Many people wonder why fitness is such an important aspect of our everyday life. There are many benefits to exercising but in this post we will be focusing about the benefits of exercise on the brain. The brain is one of the most important and complex organs in our body. It is Important to keep our brain healthy and one of the best ways to do that is to do exercise as often as possible.
There have been studies that show that there is a very powerful connection between the brain and movement. A healthy brain is needed to facilitate complex movements, and executing such movements. Getting your heart rate up enhances your brain power. for example a 2007 study has shown that subjects who did high intensity training beforehand were able to learn vocabulary 20% faster than those who remained sedentary. This phenomenon is due to a protein called Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor or BDNF for short. BDNF helps to support the survival of existing neurons, and encourage the growth and differentiation of new neurons and synapses. Exercise has also been shown to help people better deal with stress, anxiety, improved mood, focus and motivation.
